Garden ponds can be beautiful additions to home landscapes. They can also become huge burdens and eyesores, if you don't know how to maintain your pond.
To help you decide whether a garden pond is right for you, the University of Georgia Extension in DeKalb County has scheduled a "Build Your Own Pond" class.
Bill Mason, owner and manager of Pond Expo, Inc., will lead the class. Mason will discuss how to install landscape ponds the right way. The class will focus on how to avoid future problems and reduce installation costs.
The class is set for Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 7-9 p.m. It will meet at the extension office on 4380 Memorial Drive in Decatur, Ga. (Take the Memorial Drive exit off I-285.) The cost of the class is $5. For more information, call (404) 298-4080.
