Nice Water Garden

I like ponds. Our office used to be adjacent to a Japanese garden that had a pond with water lilies and turtles in it. Hanging out with the turtles was one of my favorite things to do on my afternoon break. Since we moved to North Carolina, I've been making noises about a pond in our backyard. Trouble is...ponds are kind of daunting. There's an awful lot of hole digging, stone moving, and maintenance that goes into a pond. Three things that I would rather not do and can't afford to have people do for me. There are smaller alternatives, but have you seen them? Craptastic doesn't even begin to cover it. Luckily, Apartment Therapy has come along with an attractive little solution to my problem. It's small(low maintenance), it's made out of wood (I do wood), and it's cheap (No Koi required). Maybe you need a little water feature too? link


  1. what a cool little pond. i'm sure the deer in our backyard would enjoy that one too. ;-)

  2. We don't have deer, but I can definitely see the terrier accidentally going for a swim.
