Seriously, if your handy, a kit and some rock will cost you about 2-3K. You have to be creative, but it is a fun job to do. Most people start small, and work their way out. We were lucky to be able to get this one..

The parade of Ponds is on the 17th and 18th. It's a charity event, so there is a fee. You can get tickets, and maps at most landscaping places, and nurseries.
Of course, you are all welcome at my place for free, and if I know when you coming, I'll have plenty of beer.
