Default Landscaping Around Ponds

I usually keep all my water based questions limited to rec.ponds. I thought
I would ask my around water based question here in alt.garden.pond.chat, but
I was naughty too and cross posted to rec.ponds. Hope I don't get flamed to
badly.

Anyway...

What kind of issues did you think about as you landscaped AROUND your pond?
and in the area of the pond? I have seen a few in my area that are
beautiful, but they're just plopped into the backyard environment. I am
trying to take some time to make sure my pond follows the grade of the yard
and the look of the yard so that it appears to be part of the yard, not
dropped in.

Any thoughts?

Maybe people will flame you. It seems to me that cross-posting is not a
problem and is indeed healthy. Open and welcoming communities (open systems
with some structure) get new input and keep order. Rigid, closed systems
must use only internal resources...bad in the long run. If we are open to
alt.garden.pond.chat, our system gets input from that source, or maybe
becomes a workable, larger system including that site. Nutshell: Post away
on garden.chat and bring us the fruit of your learning.

Ponders of the world unite.

Who would flame you for that?

Anyway...
What kind of issues did you think about as you landscaped AROUND your pond?
and in the area of the pond?


To Self: I can't believe you were stupid enough to dig ANOTHER pond. I
can't believe you're leveling every paving brick, one by one, perfectly. I
can't believe you talk other people into doing this too, with such
enthusiasm! You must be insane and need to be committed or something?
Perhaps more fiber in the diet would help this problem?

And that's what I thought about. ) ~ jan

So I am not the only one that hears voices when they are working in the
yard. Good to know.
