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!
In December, we wrote about and exciting design project for a new koi pond. After a lot of planning and coordination with all project parties and township permitting we are finally breaking ground in Bucks County, Pa! This week we visited the site and measured out the pond. Thanks to our drone we were able to check our measurements and the layout of the pond was right on point. You can see in the image below that we super imposed our site plan on-top of a photo of the site from our drone and everything is lining up. The first step to this construction process is the construction of a retaining wall due to a slight grade in the backyard and we need to a level site to construct this pond. Once the grade is level and the wall is constructed we will start digging the pond. Stay tuned for more project updates!
