Gordon: Now, this Gazebo is really magnificent. It makes me just sort of want to seat down and relax and enjoy the pond. Was it hard to make I guess? So, it is one of the questions.
Aaron: Well there is a lot of working involved. Tim and Tony they are really great job building it. To a lot of time and hitting the stones just right.
Gordon: This is really magnificent. You can seat in this chairs and enjoy every thing. Now, I guess, what up with the pond this size, you obviously started with blue print but did you actually follow the blue print to the letter? Was there any few changes that were made?
Aaron: Well yes. In any every project there is could be a lot of changes. Between my partners and I, we are able to come up with the right solution for each unexpected problem.
Gordon: Well, it does not when you look around there is look like you had any problems or whatsoever, was there something more obvious changes from the plan?
Gordon: Was supposed with this big?
Aaron: Well, no. We went a little bit bigger. We ended up with little more space so, we use it.
Gordon: When it that, because of the grading? And you have to bring up because you really started. There were just a big sort of smoke here. You have to build up all the rock around it.
Aaron: We ended up tracking in a lot of fill and we ended up with a lot material coming up to the holes as well so, we ended up pushing the flat space out more that we are expected.
Gordon: And then you get the deeper too I guess?
Aaron: We did, we got four feet.
Gordon: So, they will be easily be able to over winter any fish or water plants would be here and no problems whatsoever?
Aaron: They can even have coi here.
Gordon: Now, when you got the pond that you have upsize a little bit, what about filtration? Was that an issue with the pond this size?
Aaron: Well, actually a pond this size is a little easier to balance than a smaller pond. It takes a lot less energy to heated up and the pond plants and water lilies, all work together to create a low maintenance eco-system,
Aaron: So filtration not necessary.
Gordon: So cooler water less algae growth that kind of thing?
Aaron: That is right.
Gordon: Well, it really is magnificent Shibusi. You guys have done a great job and I really appreciate lentness come out and follow it through.
