We love our water feature too!
Being a landscape contractor and being involved with many aspects of construction for over 20 years, as you can imagine, our yard has evolved through many transformations.
In our backyard we enjoy our Koi Pond everyday. It's 8 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 42 inches deep with a raised front edge for seating and easy viewing. The landscape gives a mountain feel with many large boulders and evergreen trees.
