As so often there already was a smal pond with waterfall. It was always difficult to save the fish in the wintertime. An expention was desired, with a pond deep enough, to leave the fish over the wintertime where they, by nature, belong, in the pond.
After planning the new pond, Don Diamond dug the hole and I designed the levels.
Trough carefull planning, we were able to save most of the existing waterfall
Underlayment was installed, to avoid roots and small stones which could damage the liner.
Liner in place, now working out the folds, always away from the waterfall.
Here the liner is already in place, and the detailwork began
It looks very good. In the back you can see the old liner from the pre-existing waterfall hanging over the new liner.
Water going in! Connie Diamond is watching the filling.
Stones around the boarder are set and now it is time for the waterfall
Close up look at the waterfall, just before starting it up.
Here we go, and the soothing sound of water filles the backyard of the Diamond’s
A waterfall like this could be found in real nature also.
Time for waterplants and decorations, which will be done with love by Connie Diamond.
Please note: Here we used 2 Skimmerfilters, which was nessesary because of the extended watervolume
