The fish pond is gone. Every year we spent lots of time taking care of the little pond. And every year no matter how hard we tried, it was impossible to keep it clean. With the small pond being in the full sun everyday, there was no possibility of it having clear water. But we loved the sound of the fountain, being so peaceful and serene. We made the decision to fill in the pond and replace with a water fountain. This was the best decision we have made in a long time. The herb garden has been redone. We now have a two tiered fountain with a glorious sound of trickling water. A fresh layer of top soil and mulch, and the herbs are thriving.
