Oh that is fantastic!

What do you feel you learned from doing that project? Would you do anything differently if you were to do it again?

If a customer wanted such a job how much do you think would be a good range to charge and what kind of expenses were involved with the project?

What size pumps are you using for the waterfalls? Rather large I imagine? I have a 950GPH pump on mine here at home but it dosnt put out nearly enough water to do something like that.

now that you aksed that id completely go blank..i can tell you that it is nearly 650 gallons..and a feature similar to this with materials and fully landscaped would run someone around 14k...but being in my backyard there was no payment involved..:(..and this was a blast to build..not to mention you can put some odds and ends annual flowers and make it really look nice

How many man hours did it take?

Also, are you using the images at all to promote your pond services to sell more of them?

not real sure bout hours..this work came second to all my cleints just worked on it in the evenings and when i had time..it did take around 3 weeks though..and i do have a picture album and its in it..but not many of my customers seem to want to spend alot of money on pondes epecially now with this economy and job unstability..very unfortunate.

Looks very nice. Do you think it will take a lot of up keep?

Thanks for sharing!!

as far as up keep goes its not bad..just clean the algae out and run some s.a.b through to help keep the water clean and clear..and keeping the lilies cut back..they multiply like crazy.

What do you think you learned from this build? Was anything kinda tricky that you didnt think would be? Which part took the longest?
