I have a 30-footlong deck in the back, facing south, and 7 feet below I have 2 ponds, connected to a third,and when I turn the pump, the top turns into a waterfall, overflow via a stream into the 2nd, then 3rd. Ponds have large kois and waterlilies in the summer.
My orchids are grown on the deck, about 70% shaded, except in the winter. Trying to make a portable greenhouse on the deck this summer for the next winter. Not quite figure out how to do that yet. Here is a partial list of my orchids:
