I’ve had this prefabbed pond kicking around for a while.
I finally installed it and with the help of Garden Railroading Mag. I got the waterfall just like I was envisioning.
Here is a shot of early work.
This is the type of filter I used.
This is the unit I used ( Home Depot ) to get my fall
The filter is hidden to the left , I originally buried it ( what was I thinking) I placed a 12" pvc pipe around it to help when I have to clean it.
To hide the filter and the outlet I used rocks …
I have a couple of small maples , a juniper , a roady , and some flox, and I added some sedum in hopes it will grow towards the pond and onto the green chicken wire I installed.
