Living in the Pacific Northwest, unless you are wildly lucky or gloriously wealthy chances are you do not have a large backyard. We are apparently neither, so our “yard” has been transformed into more of a garden which I have come to thoroughly enjoy.

We have for several years pondered the installation of a koi pond but have always balked at the cost.

Perhaps as pure fate, a local community member was looking to replace theirs, and had one literally free, so all excuses were out the window.
