Back Yard

Now, let’s go outside.  Do you have a blah back yard and patio?  Do you need some pizazz?  Recently I have had a water feature built.  We started out with a kidney shaped pool about 6 feet by 4 feet, that someone wanted to get rid of.  The pool needed to be dropped down into the ground and had 2 shelves at a shallower level so the digging process was tricky.  We used the dirt from the hole to build a raised area for a waterfall/spillway.  On line I found some tips on how to get electricity for the pump from an electrical outlet.  We ran an extension cord through PVC pipe and then buried the pipe.  We had about 15 or so feet to go.  The only things showing are the vertical pipe going to the outlet and a round “gate valve” box where the extension cord and the pump cord connect.  I put an on/off switch between the two so it is easy to turn the pump off when working on the spillway.

My dad was a rock collector.  He passed away over 30 years ago and no one knew where his rock collection went.  He had picked up rocks wherever he traveled.  I needed rocks for my spillway and to cover the sides of the dirt mound, so I began collection rocks from the yard and stockpiling them for the spillway.  I knew where a few rocks were that kind of lined a flower bed but there were no flowers so I began digging them up.  Well, I found my dad’s rock collection.  Some were as much as 12 inches below the surface covered with leaf mold.  Using the recycled pond, dirt from the hole and dad’s rocks, my water feature is beautiful.  I now have 4 fish, 3 gold fish and one with brown and black spots.  I still need to add plants in and around the pond but I love it and it was really not that expensive.  Adding a few things like patio furniture, barbeque, fire pit and some flowers in pots and you can transform your back yard to a place where you will like to be.
