What do you use to keep you water clear with that many fish? Your pond is beautiful.
No question.... just wanted to compliment you on your well designed garden. Looks great!
I would like to see small garden
a UV filter to my pond. Not QUITE as big as this pond, but close. I also have many fish. I'm amazed at how quickly it's cleared up the pond. Check with a garden center that specializes in ponds.
Fabulous water feature! Very original and must be extremely relaxing :-) Any way we can see more of
I like the fish pond.....I like to know cost of the pond.

in your area you need at least 4 ft deep so they will not be able to catch you fishes, 2. if you live in an area where the winter is cold you will also need to dig 4 ft to be bellow the frost line. Yor fishes need water and air and to hibernate in the winter. 3. You can buy small Koi at some Nurseries
The ponds are 5 feet deep and have interconnecting underwater tunnels that allow the fish to seek cover from predators and also shade in the summer months.
Nurseries and pet stores for $1,5 they will grow in size according to the size of your pond and the amount of fishes you will have. The more room they have the more they grow
Have always wanted a fish pond.

Where and how much is the rain water system? Also what is the capacity?
Love the water tank, where did you get it?
Is the water recycled back into the house for daily use, drnking, showers, etc?
Richwood27...no the water in the cistern does not currently feedback to the building but we designed the system so that we could use the water as grey water. Currently we are unable to use it for potable/drinking water because of health codes. And yes we would need to add
to fill fish ponds and, when treated, as potable water for daily use.
pvc pipe to metal water container--toilet?
fill swimming pools, as graywater for toilets, to fill fish ponds and, when treated, as potable water for daily use.

Beyond the garden. And if you really want to enjoy your fish throughout the day and night year-round, then simply move your koi pond indoors. Warning: You might need a larger-than-average home to pull this off.More: What to consider before building a backyard fish pond
Love the look. Where can i get containers like this?
evergreen in this Pacific NW garden, including trailing Rosemary, thyme, and sage. You can also see a white flowering lavendar and an orange flowering perennial (not edible) in this image...sorry I do not have an ID for the orange flower, but anything with similar water/sun requirements to the herbs
I'm not sure where those planters specifically are from, but Inner Gardens has a few great planters that are the same modern style, and a similar color. Here's one to give you an idea: http://www.houzz.com/photos/169937/Inner-Gardens-Fiber-Cement-Arrow-Planter--outdoor-planters- Design Within Reach is
love the alignment and the containers!
apply to planters and containers. This mixture of edible herb plants, especially with the differing variegated foliage, feels cohesive — it might have been confused if brightly colored or patterned containers had been used
Looking to build a raised vegetable garden..
I have seen cattle feed troughs and water troughs done this way. There's different sizes, won't have to worry about sharp edges. In this area we have Scruggs tractor supplies that would have
Water troughs. Use as table/storage base? Benches

pond supply shops in your area for natural solutions such as barley mats, fish, and other solutions. If the fish are not overfed, they will eat the moss in the pond if they can reach it. Also stock pond snails and bottom feeder fish to help. The fact that your pond is not completely in the sun should

Ami, be very careful advising people on using live / creek water. Across most of the USA you will get into legal trouble doing that.
about 10 feet long going into the pond from the top to the bottom. The waterfall is at one end, and there are no "dead spots" in this pond so that the water keeps circulating all the time.

We have a very similar pond. It is deep and fish die in it. Wondering what we can do to improve?
I love the look to this and wondering if you could convert this look into a rain garden?
How to Design a Concrete Water Feature?
- Notice the concrete edge, but what's the layers underneath that pond of water? - Is concrete a more affordable alternative to cinder blocks or other materials?
Water can complement any type of garden
Water feature using old trough instead of plastic
minimal, sculptural Koi pond adds visual interest to the courtyard while supplementing the essence of water in the entry.
At 1 foot to 18 inches, a shallow pond will allow you a better view of your fish.
