ok so I'm faster than I thought for pics:
the area:

some materials:

closer / the turqouise bucket is gonna be the catch ond house the pump - it will get a liner



with Daizy the dog - for scale of course!


Any input would be great - the idea is to have a wooden tiki spraying the water from mouth / through a tube into a clam shell that will then spill / cascade down the rocks - not a big drop but it will make a bit of splash sound. We'll see!

I plan on some lighting in a dn around and behind it some Bamboo "fencing" and plants / palms.

PLease speak up with thoughts or possible problems!

The ponds they sell at Lowe's etc. are black, so I doubt black is an issue. You don't want it in the sun anyway, or the algae will get out of hand quickly. They are also pretty cheap. Maybe $50 for a pretty good sized one. I have been considering this project myself. They have lots of pumps and supplies, so it could be an easy-ish project. Lots of digging though. Liner, pump, tubing, and that's all under $100 for a pond about 4 feet across. Add rocks and run the tube through the rocks to pour out as you want.

Of course, none of that is as easy as it sounds.

looks like you're off to a good start!

Here's a ponding forum with tons of info that can help if you need:
http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/ponds/
It has tons of info buried in it's pages- so much it will make you second guess yourself if you research too much. Great info for making a low care setup. There's a gallery link towards the top so you can see what others have done.

I have a similar tiki fountain project in the works and have been looking for a decent clamshell too (Not sure if you're still going that direction). Check out this planter if you're still looking: http://www.lillianvernon.com/catalog/product_display.jsp?pdId=2393

Can't wait to see the progress..

Its been a while and the fountain is still working, a few tweaks of rocks and a shell replacement from oceanic arts - its plastic. The night shot is not so great but I'll use my good camera at some point in the evening and update.
sideways again....




let me know what you think

That turned out amazing. Great work! I really like the lighting.


I wonder if the Air Force will let me do this in base housing....
