  • Swimming heaven

    John and Barb Bauman, Maple Plain, Minnesota, built an elaborate pond on their acreage in 2005. It serves as a swimming pool for their three children, friends, and neighbors. The landscaping around the pond is still a work in progress.

  • Hard-working waterfall

    Twin pumps circulate 80,000 gallons of water through the waterfall every three to four hours. Many of the boulders came from nearby farm fields.
