WIP Koi Pond Waterfalls

Click here to watch this video on YouTube

When Bo heard that my sister was taking down her fish pond, he has a vision to build waterfalls for our backyard Koi Pond.

He has been working on it for 2 days and it is still not complete.

The side needs some rocks or bricks to coverup the black plastic lining.

It was working by the time I got home from work and the waterfalls sound so nice.  The fish seem to love it and even birds find the upper part to be their new bird bath.  I will need to get some water plants for the upper pond.

I think it looks good as is and can’t wait to see when it’s finished.

First photo was taken with Canon T2i, and EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens.

  1. It’s coming along nicely. This is a great addition to the garden.

    I think using potted flowering plants (or even bamboo) to hide the plastic would work too. This way you don’t have to go out and get more bricks.

    • cn, thanks for the idea. I have several potted flower that we could move around. I have to see how it will work out, I know Bo has several flat rocks that he might use. The fish and birds are loving this new addition and not as treacherous for the birds as before. I found birds drowned in the pond before from trying to drink from the pond water.

  2. This was a very interesting post, Nye. I love the sound of water, and you captured it very well. I’m impressed with your videos. They are giving me a standard to reach for.

    • Thanks Gerry for your kind words. It’s a short video and more time shooting and editing. The video can capture images and sounds better than photograph imo, and many times I can see the composition of the photo better while shooting the video. It’s relaxing and fun to work with and I do look forward to seeing your short film. 🙂
