Last year while redoing the lower pond. Twila said she did not want her yard torn up AGAIN next summer. "If you are going to do another pond you had better do it now". Talk about being given a license!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was always going to have an upper pond. Originally it was going to be a bog filter, water garden or maybe a place for small fish to grow up without competeinng with the bigger fish I had adopted. It would join the lower pond by water fall. Then I ran across Koiphen and that has changed my perspective as many here have discovered.
The next design was a large double lobed/peanut design. It would be a liner pond with two bottom drains. Approx 27' long and each lobe of the peanut about 10' and 12' respectively. The edges would start at 5' and the BD's would be 7' in depth. Still joining the lower pond by water fall. However a completely diffrent filtration system so the two ponds could be separated by lowering the water level in the upper pond. This would be accomplished by having the water being recirculated from the lower pond to the upper pond simply return to the lower pond and allowing the waterfall to go dry.
Plans change.............still have the unused liner as mentioned earlier this spring in my other threads. Let's get this project started.
