Project Update: Trough Pond A Go-Go
Austin Outdoor Studio sealed it a few days ago, and after letting the seal cure for 48 hours, we filled it with water. No leakage, much to my relief.
We've added a hardy water lily and some blue flag irises, along with some snails. The lilies are still under the water, stretching to reach the surface, and will show themselves in a day or two. Fish will have to wait about two weeks for the water to temper itself and some beneficial bacteria to build up in the pond and filter.
