Survey Shows Homeowners Like the Peace and Tranquility of Ponds

A homeowner survey conducted by California Waterscapes just released showed that the main benefit they perceived they would get from owning a water garden, such as a backyard pond, waterfall or stream was peace, tranquility and relaxation. I would agree with that. At least when everything is working correctly. ha-ha.
They said popularity of backyard water features such as ponds, streams and waterfalls is on the rise. That seems to be the case in my experience, in our little town a few years ago I only knew of our ponds now there are three set ups and what I think will really be a cool one is going to be built next year by a friend who is getting into it.

Compact Compost Maker

I came across this compact compost maker at they have the plans for it on flickr it wouldn't cost much for the materials and for a small garden situation it looks like it would work pretty well.
