What do I need to start this project? - I have about a 7f tX 7ft area that I want to make into a pond/waterfall. I have already collected a few big flat rocks to start and dug out a place to start it.

7 x 7 is not a very large area, in fact it is quite small for a pond. You will need to find some type of pump and filter and this may come in many forms. In addition you will need underlayment and liner. The underlayment helps to protect the liner. I would suggest EPDM rubber liner and not vinyl. You can check an online source like or some other pond seller. Many of them sell kits that have all you need in terms of equipment in one or two boxes. All you need to add are the rocks, labor, water, fish, and plants.

It was either a fescue blend or a shade mix which is fescue in most cases.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to 3 Fuss-Free Ways to Garden
If you're really stuck on the idea of having a plant that requires a lot of water, creating a small pond or bog could save you a lot of watering time (and money) in the long run. Be sure to only do this for plants that really need a lot of moisture, otherwise the wet area could actually overwater and kill them.
Amy Renea added this to Paint a Garden Delightful With Iris
Irises can be planted in any type of soil, but they love the water. In fact, they can even be planted in shallow water — Japanese and Louisiana irises are particularly good for water planting.
