A year and a couple of months in the making

Date for this part April 15th
End date Aug 28…

For more click on label Koi Pond, or Sarah’s Pond
Soon after Sarah’s Pond was complete, the ducks wrecked havoc. Temporary measure was a plastic fence. This summer we added not just a Fence, as we call it the DUCK Fence, but a lower deck adjacent to the existing deck Plus a concrete pad that is Beautiful.
Enjoy a work in progress. Next year I shall add some Lily of the Valley as well as more ferns. It should settle out and be just totally wonderful. Aside from keeping the gardening and pond maintained
Stamped concrete is becoming increasingly popular and a more frequent material of choice for homeowners across the country because of the wide array of patterns and colors available, particularly compared to other potential patio materials.
We chose for the patterned stone Fieldstone.
Colors and patterns for stamped concrete are often chosen to blend with other stone or tile elements at the residence. Complex designs incorporating steps, courtyards, and fountains can be achieved. Stamped concrete can also be blended with other decorative concrete elements such as exposed aggregate finishes and acid-etch staining. Many contractors offer dozens of patterns.

I was absolutely astonished to see so many pictures of so much work being done. You had to have won the lottery.

Here is a shot I took at Shiogama, Japan 54 years ago when color film first came out Thunder Maker
