Your pond is looking very nice, just a few tips i notice lots of earth around the pond which will blow into the water and make it very dirty and if you are keeping fish in it, then you need to have lots of thick growth around to prevent it. if this is what you are in th emiddle of doing, then until the growth is thick, cover some of the earth with gravel for the time being. you will enjoy all the wild life that it will atract as I have a large pond and we get all sorts, like birds having a bath in the water fall trays and foxes at night having a drink cats as well. but whatch for birds flying down and taking out your fish. you need to cover with a nett until the pond plants have thickened over to make a shade cover which will help keep the sun off which stops it going green. hope this was helpful. It will look lice as well with a water fall as the sound of running water is so relaxing. Good luck
