Awards and Comments

Second Place
More green would definitely contribute to the
overall look.
— Detlef Hupfeld
This pond fits very well into the yard, and the planting looks very natural. The layout of the pond is attractive with the border blending into the surrounding landscape.

While the planting looks natural, I'd like to see more plants, and more colors.
— Chuck Gadd
