What a great article. I saw a big beautiful pond and waterfall that was constructed with the top portion (the fall) made from an old huge satelite dish. With the landscaping, it didn't look like a "dish" and was perfect for the job. AND, it took the ugly thing out of the yard and not into the landfill. My first pond was an old cast iron bathtub sunk in the ground, piled some rocks inside so the frogs could enter/exit, and fish hide. My family, farmers, always recycled and reused as a way of "making do". Who knew redneck gardening would become the new hot "green" choice for conservation. May the sun shine on the back of all gardeners' necks this summer! (With sunscreen of course)

lol, i think my very first pond was made out of a black trash bag. I did another trash bag pond here a couple years ago and it lasted a year until the dogs got in it LOL.

This article is just in time for me. I am creating a "no mow" lawn, and am just about to the point of digging my pond. I have already bought a water garden liner (it ought to last forever, it's so thick). I had also bought a pump, but it seems now I won't need to use it. I'm getting anxious to get started.

I was going to put in a picture of where it is going to be, but I don't know how.
