I started spring/summer cleaning the goldfish pond we have, and found where our ant problem originates (under the waterfall and pond). So we are now debating whether to get rid of the whole pond and replace it with patio. We thought that since there already is an electrical line, we could put an outlet for laptop there (talk about nerds gardening :p) in the middle of future patio.
Now, we might be moving in a year or two, so I am wondering if a pond is a selling point? Should we keep the pond, do people like to buy a house with pond, or do they look at it as something with too much upkeep? Would people rather see a patio or a pond when they look for a house?
