Dr. Dave! Wonderful use of your landscape to create paradise! If I ever have a yard large enough in which to put a pond yours is an inspiration! I like the use of the goose neck lights near the que! I am beginning to design mine and I liked your design!!

Love your yard DrDave! Looks like a sanctuary.
