Touch of Paradise in Chillicothe, MO

My husband and I worked on this project for one year. We did the work ourselves, including hand picking 60 tons of rock out of a field! My husband also did all the pavestone work. It truely is our "Touch of Paradise"!

You should submit this in the Lawn Wars TV Show contest. Go to the Yard Contests tab to get started. It is exactly what the show is looking for. Good Luck!

Gorgous, absolutely breathtaking. Thanks for sharing the images of the steps in the process of construction. After seeing these, I'm afraid my small little pond is in for an expansion this spring!


Off da hook man!!!!!!!!!!

It's perfect and I like the fact you did it your self. You get a 100 from me great job. nCheck out our garden pond (Ron & Eydies garden pond) it's not as large as yours and we don't have snow down here in New Orleans,but let us know what you think. Take care
