|New, Small, Kidney Pool For 2007|
We had to pull-out, re-dig and replace the little pool in this area. Well, hubby did it for me. Last year we had a 20 gal. tub submerged in the ground, and it looked SO good (pics of it are in last year's album, and I added one to this year's album too), but we should have leveled the ground around it rather than sloping it upward 'cause the rocks fell in all the time and rain washed dirt into it.
It was also hard to clean this Spring (And what a mess it was to clean-out even though I tried to keep it covered). Last Fall I had to rescue a baby mole from it before it filled with melted snow and rain and this Spring I had to rescue a baby snake out of the water...yuck, yuck, yuck to both. Even though this pool is only 10 gal. larger (30 gal.), it's more shallow so cleaning it will be much easier.
I still have to finish the landscaping around it, and I'll be adding 2 of our large goldfish to it.
