A Backyard Paradise!
The main pond
Our February Pond of the Month has been a fixture on our Pond-O-Rama
public tours since 2003. Rick and Pam Jokerst's beautiful water
feature would be an ideal vacation spot! Can't you just imagine
it? Children splash in the pool or explore the paths as adults
visit in one of the many sitting areas on the wraparound deck,
snack in the outdoor kitchen or soak in the spa tub. Flowers are
everywhere, the soothing sound of water eases your mind, and the
fish swim lazily by.
