You are much more inventive than I would be. I hope that translucent panel works out. It should capture and hold heat since the water is below ground level.


I'm going to have to work out a netting solution for my stock-tank pond in Feb-Mar, when the live oaks drop their leaves all at once as the new leaves come in. You're right, it'll look junky for a while, but anything to save the work of fishing out huge piles of leaves from the bottom of a chilly pond.


Kathleen, Send your teasing neighbors to look at my garden...they will appreciate anew how good your garden looks! I think both ideas are creative and get the job done! gail


Hope that works for you...though it does look less than attractive.


It's a lot better than what other people leave in their front yards, at least it's not an old washing machine :) Whatever works is the best thing and it sounds like a great idea.


Soon it will be covered in snow and no one will even know it's there. Besides, the loveliness of the pond in the warm months will more than make up for the unsightliness(if anyone even notices that).

Sweet Bay

Whatever works! :) You have more ambition than I do, I find ponds intimidating to take care of.
