Not if it is built properly.

Mosquito's?

Mosquito's?


Yeah, those that are of Italian heritage named "Quito" and go to afternoon prayers at a "mosg".

A properly constructed pond is a self sustaining ecosystem. It's not a swill hole of stagnant water, mosquitoes and anaerobic bacteria.
A pond is a beautiful addition to a yard- even if its a small pond.
They attract birds and wildlife.

I heard frogs in my yard yesterday!

I found a frog in a planter at the Greenry.
So I made sure I bought the plant and headed to Bman's dump and swill hole.
Waited for Bman to get home, dumped the froggie down her dress and ran like hell.
Best day ever.
Bman named the frog "Squeal Like a Girl."

The kids went fishing in my pond with the net last year which killed a few of the lilies. Love the pond, but I keep having to add water when the fountain is going because I lose water in the upper section (not lined in the stream and evaporation from the waterfall).

I'll probably go fishing in Bman's Pond right after I take a dip in Santa's community pool.
