Default Help! - Inherited pond out of control

get a large water trough like a rubbermaid and put the fish in there with a simple
doityourself gravity filter. fill it with pond water.
be sure to put bird netting over the top to keep the fish in. use any filter
material in the gravity filter and keep the trough in the shade if possible.
build a formal pond with wood stud walls and a wood deck, construct a veggie filter
along one side.
this is the simplist way to have healthy happy koi AND nice plants with the least
amount of work.
this is another formal type pond with decking.

I want to tear it down and rebuild it possible using
a more user-friendly filtering system and container-plants,
maybe more zen-style.
