Dr Dave! You should submit this in the Lawn Wars TV Show contest. Go to the Yard Contests tab to get started. Good luck!

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!!
