  1. Hi, I have been considering going to LOR for the last 2 years but after really looking into what i will have to do lights wise i have decided to leave it for the 2010 display and look into it for the 2011 display.

I hammered timber garden stakes around the edge then ziptied ropelight at 3 different heights. I didn't want to have to fence it but within a week of the first time i used the pond in the display i had some toddler decide it would be great to hop along the rocks at the edge of the pond. Thought i had better add something to deter it before someone fell in and i got sued.
