“This pond is going to have it all!”
It’s going to be 20-feet long and wide too. This leaves plenty of room for fish and aquatic plants. Leading into the pond is a 25-foot stream that runs into a bog.
“Why do we need a bog, Andrew?” Andrew looks up at Laurie. “The bog helps filter the water so it stays clean and clear. The stream does too plus it aerates the water, helping the fish to breathe.”
The size and multiple flows of water offer unique views from many different areas. No matter where you stand you get a fantastic view of something a little bit new.
“Speaking of standing, we’re also getting Premier Ponds to build a patio for us. It’ll be great for parties and relaxing next to our pond,” Andrew adds.
Building this pond in Silver Spring started in December 2013. It was up and running by Christmas, but constant snow and poor weather delayed it a lot. It wasn’t completely finished until April 2014. A project like this usually takes a team of 5 about 2 weeks to finish.
