On a recent consultation, I came across something that was interesting. The owner had a small enclosed patio area, hmmm, it looks like it could have potential, and I noticed that it had a hot tub, and it was on. As I walked closer I noticed, there were live Koi swimming around in the Hot tub. Long story short, the hot tub wasn't working properly, and the hole was there in the patio and ground for it. His ex-wife always wanted a koi pond, so he decided to give her what she wanted.
He was trying to sell the home. Taking the hot tub out would leave a huge hole, and cost more than he wanted to spend. So I suggested draining it and getting the heavy plastic liner and covering the entire tub including top ledge, and placing rocks, and plants around the top to look like a real koi pond that had always been there.
He loved the idea, but haven't heard if he followed through with it. If he does I will post the new photos.
