I put this pond in in 2000. I'm always wanting to re-do the waterfall and had a curved log given to me this summer that I will incorporte into it soon. I want to have moss grow on the log also...

I made this stepping stone this summer. The pruple paint is from my front porch deck. I painted it this summer. Amazing what they can do with outdoor stain now.

Wow. I'm impressed. Both look great. What material is your stepping stone from?

RE: Backyard Pond

Just plain old cement and it weighs a ton.... I mixed it up, placed half on the leaf, placed window screening over the cement then placed the rest of the cement. I had some cement left over and thought I would make a couple smaller stones and also made the decision to leave out the screen and they popped along the veins so I learned a good lesson there. LOL
Thank you for your kind words.

Your pond and stepping stone look just great. The pond is too cute for words. i have never seen such a stepping stone before - i absolutely love the fact that you made it yourself.

Extremely pretty. Thanks for sharing.

Love the pics, love the leaf stepping stone. Did you color the cement the green color or paint it after it dried? About how thick is the leaf? I would love to do some but would like to have more direct instructions. Im always scared to try something new by winging it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I wish I had a better picture of the waterfall.

I would love to see your waterfall up close. Looks great in your picture. I stained afterwards using a sponge for a more mottled look. It's about 4 inches thick with a piece of window screen in the middle for added stability.
