your barrel pond is pretty impresive and it looks huge too. mine is 2 feet in diameter. and your fish are beautiful.

yes I love my lilly, my mother actually got it years ago, and I recently aquired it cause it didnt seem to be growing so well for her so I thought Id give it a shot. so I guess its an adopted l illy :)

Love your barrel pond.Hopefully when we get a house with a back garden as well as a front a pond is on the agenda.

Barrel ponds are so neat. They look so natural without all the electrical gadgets beside them!! Beautiful

How do you make a barrel pond? They look really neat.

I followed the instructions on these pages when I made mine several years ago.

Jeff says you can do a half barrel without a liner. I tried his non-liner approach and it didn't work for me. Otherwise, everything he says is good advice.
