pond details - how is the pond lined to be waterproof or so it doesnt leak? special cement? was it built with cinder blocks or form poured concrete?

It's poured concrete and I believe we used zypex or some other waterproofing made specifically for concrete applications.

I recently added 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.

I think it's bamboo - a smaller, lighter variety - perhaps Heavenly Bamboo?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A variation on the design, this in-ground trough provides a koi pond.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Dreaming of a Bedroom Walkout
Forget waking up to the nudging nose a cat or dog — fish keep to themselves and won't wake you up at 5:30 a.m. on the weekend. A mesmerizing pet that you can visit at your leisure doesn't come often. But that's okay, we all love our four-legged friends and would never really trade them for a school of fish. Their calmness is just an added bonus.
Cathy Lara added this to Up the Luck in Your Home
5. Koi fish. A koi pond on one's property is said to be one of the most powerful feng shui symbols of wealth and good fortune.
4 Garden Pests and How to Eliminate ThemMosquitoes. In most areas mosquitoes are a major issue in the summertime and can hinder outdoor activities. They thrive in areas with a regular water supply and can multiply very quickly into large numbers if left unchecked. All of your garden's water features should have movement on the surface of the water. Mosquito larvae can survive only in stagnant water, so if a pump is installed in a water feature, mosquito colonies are less likely to survive. Introducing fish into a pond is also a great way to combat mosquitoes, since they eat the larvae before they hatch. Goldfish, minnows and betta fish (also called Siamese fighting fish) are all great options for controlling mosquitoes. Finally, there are several plants you can add to your garden to help repel mosquitoes. Catnip is a natural mosquito repellent that grows in most areas as an easy-growing perennial. Marigolds also have a distinctive smell that is unbearable to mosquitoes. Try planting these annuals in pots around your patio and next to windows, and the smell will prevent mosquitoes from hanging around.
Give a garden a private entrance. A small garden off the master bedroom can be a lovely place to relax in. Sliding glass doors allow you to enjoy the view while inside and let in extra light. Consider sectioning off a small part of your yard with shrubs, trees or a fence for privacy. A water feature is a serene touch and also helps mask noises from neighbors.
