Very sad pond landscaping images…
If you missed this blog, you might want to give it a quick read. If you’re pressed for time, the long story made short is that Lisa and I are completely redoing the landscaping around our backyard pond.
Killing the existing plants with Roundup was the easy part. We also had two nights of hard freezes, which certainly helped the process (and really hurt the grass).
Once everything died all the dead plants and weeds had to be removed. It was a huge job, and Lisa and I worked our asses off all weekend long. In fact, we’re not quite done removing everything.
Anyway, I figured I’d post these pictures since I promised that I would. It hurts to see the pond in this condition, but I know this was the right thing to do. So consider these “before” pictures. In a month or two things are going to look amazing again. 🙂

Once the last of the dead stuff is removed, I’ll turn the earth and grade it. After that I’m going to wait several weeks to see if any weeds or that horrible white society garlic comes back. Once I’m satisfied that the soil is ready, we’ll plant the new landscaping (we’re still planning that out), mulch and enjoy. 🙂
