  1. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    Hi! New to the forum. Designer and DIY’er losing steam and wanting to find permanent fixes to several projects. Have 1000 sq ft of brick pavers I laid atop a concrete foundation patio 3 years ago where I used gator sand for joints and an inexpensive sealer. The gator sand doesn’t seem to be...
  2. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    Hello, I came across this forum looking for info about a project, but I think I need more specific help than I could find. The short version of my question is this: I'm walling in a raised bed with a stock tank pond in the middle, so what is the most cost-effective way of building the wall for...

    THis was from a few months ago, but right now the water is over the road where I’m standing taking this picture from. This is the corner of my 20 acre property. My house is just to the right. I have no idea on how to get rid of this water, it’s very close to my house right now. Would digging a...

    I realize this is pretty specialized, but if you're landscaping, maybe you're also dealing with ponds and their filter issues. It's clear I need at least a new impeller (replacement part pictured), but I'm debating whether it's time to buy a whole new Laguna 960 filter pump. I plug it in and...

    I have a concrete and rebar slab in my back yard that I'd like to build a pond on. Unfortunately at 6ft x 7ft x 4ft tall the water weight will be 10,500lbs of pressure. It doesn't have to be pretty, so I'm considering four walls of concrete and rebar filled cinderblocks masoned together by a...

    Does anyone have suggestions for organic lawn fertilizers and pesticides that actually work? We recently moved to a home that backs up to a large pond. We have St. Augustine grass but it needs to be fertilized as the weeds are taking over. Also have grubs and ants. I've always used non-organic...

    Hi - I just bought a house with a huge (maybe 30 - 40' diameter) man-made pond with a concrete bottom. It is cracked along several sides due to tree roots. Until I can figure out what to do with it long-term I need a way to drain the standing water that keeps gathering in several places after...

    I live in Arizona. I just bought a new condo. It has a little yard (maybe 5 ftx20 ft? I'm bad at estimating distances). I was thinking it might be nice to have a (very) small pond or water garden in one corner. But I need advice. Especially since I'm... extremely not-wealthy. A friend's...

    Hi! I just bought a preformed pond and found no instructions whatsoever on winterizing it. I'm in Canada and winters can get very cold. I'm worried that if I leave the water in as it freezes up might break the preform pond so what do I do? :confused1: There are no fish or plants in it just...
