Hosta Garden Pond

The pond next to the Hosta Garden has been lowered 6-8 ft. for work to be done on the electric panel and the pump that powers the waterfall. Both will be moved to the picnic area side of the pond and the water recirculation extended across the pond. This will hopefully solve some of the problems that we've had with the pumps in the past! Needless to say, the waterfall has been dry for awhile, after the previous pump burned out.

We'll also be adding another pump to recirculate water through the created stream along the fern walk which leads into the pond. This will allow us to have running water without using groundwater from the well.

Expect the edge of the pond to look unsightly for several weeks, as Eric Soto, our facilities manager, tackles this project.
