Thanks to smartpond® we’re building a duck pond for the Happy Ducks! They are thrilled and will be quacking their opinions as time goes on. They thank smartpond from the bottom of their little duck hearts.
Why am I showing you a pile of random boxes?
Because they are not so random! They are from smartpond® and when the hubby gets to them they will be a duck pond! I know the Happy ducks are going to be thrilled to have their very own pond. They are very water-centric animals. Every morning they charge out of their duck house and waddle at the speed of well, Indian runner ducks to their current pond.
We have been filling a small kiddie pool for them every day and they absolutely love it but there is not a lot of room in it for all of the ducks. Recently the latest one sprung a leak and they were reduced to this:
It was pretty sad.
A duck in a stainless steel bowl. It took a couple of days for the new kiddie pool to arrive but they are back in business. I know they will be even happier when the spiffy smartpond® duck pond gets built. The hubby drew a rough sketch – and as he said, he didn’t go to art school….
….heh. But that is OK. The wonderful engineers at smartpond put together a package of materials that will help the hubby build the Happy ducks a most wonderful pond. The best part is that it will be moving water not standing water which is so important with all of the issues that come with water that just sits. We don’t have a lot of mosquitoes here but even one can be one too many.
If you would like to add a pond to your landscape plan smartpond is a great place to start. They have a pond calculator so you can figure out exactly what you need for your project. I’ll be honest – I wanted to add koi fish but with the ducks and the chickens I would have been adding “snax.” That would not have been very fair to the koi fish would it have been? But YOU can have them! You can find everything you need to build your smartpond® at your nearest Lowes (probably not the koi fish, though) and you’ll be ready to enjoy a beautiful pond your yard.
Be sure to follow along as the Happy ducks move on up to a DE-luxe pond on the Farm thanks to smartpond®! Final installation won’t be until the end of June due to weather concerns and my trip back home to see my niece graduate but I’ll keep you up to date on everything as we go about building a duck pond. I wonder if they’ll be the Happier ducks then?
