Totally agree Verd, only difference is, ponds are a bit harder to alter once you do them!
Plants can easily be moved and altered on a whim and although there might be the odd casualty, it's an opportunity to try something else as you found recently with your Acer. I think most of us have tried something, then looked at it at a later date and thought - nope, don't like that, and have changed it- sometimes quite radically.
I like to plan properly, but I'm also capable of altering that plan once I've started to implement it. It's part of the fun
