The main structure of the pond was fine, it just needed some refinements
This is where the window is going
A large hole in the base of the pond was the reason the renovations commenced.
The filter chambers were fine.
The pumphouse was redesigned by both Reg Tipple & Ces Graham

A bit of paint and we are all done. The koi absolutely love the window & so do I.
The end result is a lot more pleasing to the eye.
