I am currently putting in a garden pond, which when finished will hold about 10,000gals of water. I have read some books to get info, but the best info comes from folks who have first hand knowledge. What would you do different if you were to put in a pond today? Are there any sites I could look at for ideas as to design etc. What advice would you give,to make it go easier? Thanks

Dear Dorothy, My husband andI just finished our pond last week. We went from a 280 gal small pond to a 3,000 gallon pond. Would I do anything different, no I don't think so. If you are putting in a 10,000 gal pond you better be sure that it is the way you want it before the digging begins. Draw it out and seek out all the advice you can get. We found a lot of help from Atponds Watergarden Store. Try the website www.pondhelp.com Are you digging this pond up yourself or having it done mechanically?

There is the awesome site on ponds. www.aquascapes.com It was recommended to me by a nursery in BC who went to a gardening seminar this summer.
