I removed a board from the deck, passed the electrical cord for the pump down through the hole, sent Fiona underneath the deck to pull the cord through, chiseled a little groove in the two-by-four for the cord, replaced it, filled the pond and turned the pump on. The pump, the cable and the hoses are hidden beneath the deck so everything looks pretty natural.
Despite its tiny size, we like it. It makes just the right sound and you can hear it beautifully from the deck. If we ever get any deck furniture we'll be able to sit up there and enjoy it. For now we're limited to standing, kneeling and perching, as you can see Fiona, Noah and Sophie respectively demonstrating.
