My only plan is to add a extra pond and connect it to my small lotus pond
i went up to the hills last weekend and got two loads of rock off the side of the road .
This morning I'm digging out the grass ,I'm back in resting because i cant go like i use to lol .
I don't really have a plan , I'm just going to dig and put rocks were i think they fit

a senior moment Dr Case we are not as young as we used to be .Rest the body for another go at it .I always stop before I get careless .When you get tired is when you make mistakes that can hurt you .

I envy you for being able to start your spring project already. It's 19 out this morning here and pond is almost frozen over. I can't start my projects for another 6 weeks or so but I can plan..

So your freestyling it! I like it! You have to take some pics and shows us your art..

remember tmann having time to plan out everything keeps you from making a mistake and also lets you see something you may want to change before you do change something .I like the off time as it gives me time to just rest and enjoy the pond as it is .It also gives me time to think of new things or find neat pics or video's or borrow someone elses ideas

The first thing i had to do was move out all the old white rocks

Then i came back with rocks that matched better

Then the grass had to come out, i added it to the hill

Then i made a new wall out of the white rocks

You got some nice looking rocks, and big ones too. I went today scoping out some places that i could get some, may have found a spot to get some but they are flat not boulder type. That is pretty much all i have round here are flat ones.

Oh, it's such a lovely pond, DrCase!:D
I wish I could start my spring projects already. I don't plan anything big - but I'd love to start. Unfortunately it's impossible. Today it's -8c during the day, in the night it will be probably colder and everything is covered with snow:(

Thats all true sissy
I always have a plan down to the smallest detail they run in my head out of control. lol
I am trying not to think at all & just do it this time
I just came up with a better pond placement because i didn't have a plan
Just going with the flow

I'm in a state of transition this year where I'm planning to move within the next couple of months. So I'm not planning to start any new gardening projects except sanding and repainting my patio chairs and maybe buying some new pots for my existing plants if I can find a good deal.
I love planting new seeds in the spring, but I don't want to start anything new this spring and then have to move it. Things are unsettled right now so I'm not adding anything new that will have to be moved.
I'm definitely going to do some summer projects because I'll hopefully be settled by then and retailers have a crap ton of plants and seeds on sale in the summer.

All looks great, good job! The sandy coloured rocks definitely look better than the white ones in that position :)

That pond is gorgeous. You must be so proud to see the results of your hard work every time you walk by. The new rocks definitely match better than the white rocks. What a difference.

Thanks all
The white rocks were their for a long time ,my other rocks finally made it to them ,and some thing had to give
Now the whites will just be a high boundary between the grass and the pond, , more like different layers of rock

That looks awesome I would really like to have a look at the final image when its all set, I also love to design landscapes. The work that you've done looks professional in my experience, just like a skilled landscaper. We also have a small garden terrace and my kids love to spend moment there.
