Corner Pond 2003

   
Corner Pond 2004


 Fall - 2005 

 

This corner came about because I had a spare liner. I purchased a barrel liner a number of years ago when it was on sale. After having it sit in a box for way too long, I decided to do something with it. This little pond is only about 15 inches deep...perhaps 3 or 4 feet wide. I added some driftwood for decoration and over the years have changed the centre fountain part of it.

The white plastic lattice in the background is covering up a structure that holds a brush  pile for the birds. It was once the frame for a screened/covered sandbox for our sons when they were younger. One day while doing some tree trimming, we started throwing the branches into this frame, thinking that we'd move it one day. Well, the birds took such a liking to the "mess", that we thought we'd better let them have it. It's a great place for them to dry off after bathing in the little pond, and an even better place to hide from the local hawks that look at my yard as a buffet table. I planted a Virginia Creeper at the front corner of it a couple years ago, and it's growing quite well.

A quick note...if you wish to keep a pond clear, and don't want to get into plants, all that is required is a bit of Javex, perhaps once a week or so. That's what I do with most of my smaller ponds.
