Thanks, guys. It was once just a spring-filled, swampy hillside and we made a pond out of it about 20 years ago. The pond lilies are simple to plant— throw a few dozens bulbs into the water and let nature implant them into the pond bank, then wait a few years.

Here are some photos of my two sons and a nephew building the 40’ bridge to the island. We dug some deep footers, somehow got the 45’ ibeams across the span, then decked it with treated lumber and finished with a wire cable railing.
