The koi pond construction continues to run smoothly and we are continuing the boulder placement process. We recently added the bridge to the pond, which was constructed out of of old granite slabs. Concrete pillars were formed to anchor the slabs and give the bridge support. The granite slabs will be added to the landscape so that the theme of the linear pieces will be found throughout the garden. Lots more to look forward to, stay tuned!
We have made a ton of progress at our new koi pond construction job. By a ton, we mean a whole lot of boulders for this pond! The filtration and the liner have been laid out and now we are onto the boulder placement. The boulders not only help secure the liner down, but they also help make the pond look naturalistic and as if it were formed naturally. The boulders are native to Pennsylvania and come from a quarry that we like to keep secret. Our owner Brian Buchholtz takes a lot of pride in his boulders and is exceptionally great at boulder placement. He takes every boulder into consideration and even takes the time to hand select most boulders at the quarry for every project he does. We feel that this attention detail, that most would overlook, helps set us a part as pond builders. The boulder placement takes time and we have learned a lot from many mistakes and successes. We feel very lucky to have the resources and people that we have, on our team. This project is well under way and we look forward to more progress and updates...stay tuned for more!
