Raised Pond Wall by [email protected]
I am going to build a slight raised pond, about6 12 in above the ground. I would like decorative walling and would like to know if I should make the "wall" double skinned, with concrete block on the inside?. Also what size of foundation is required for this wall?

Extra goldfish by Jim
Hello, Each year my pond produces more fish than I can take care of. What do people do with their extra goldfish? Fishermen say it's not good to dump them into streams because they eat the small gamefish. Would a river be a good place to put extra goldfish into? Thanks, Jim

Spunjez or Horn Wort? by Ded Objekts In Veevoh
