Don't rule out your front-yard when
planning a water garden; a large front-yard makes a great place for a pond. This
site shows large pond with multiple waterfalls facing the front of the house. The
sound of water can be heard from the porch, which has become one of this family's
favorite places to spend time. This pond is home to a large number of water lilies,
bog plants, and about 25 Koi.
