My sister rents a house.  She bought a small pond big enough for gold fish and
has totally transformed a little side area into something absolutely charming.
I think you can have a pond almost anywhere at minimal cost.  She found a
discount outlet instead of going through your basic suppliers.  The cost was
less than $300 including pump, fish, plant material.  She put it in herself
and used beach stone to edge the pond and blend it into the grass.  Put in a
couple of comfortable chairs and a garden backdrop in kidney shaped design.
She put in a crushed stone walkway between the garden and the pond.  The
crushed stone she got from me for free.  There you have it.  Chris from
