The Build

Here are some shots from the Pond Build--from the Location I picked to the start of digging! I picked a location in my backyard that gets mostly morning sun, since I am in So. Cal. afternoon sun can be tough. So with my location picked, I started to dig and dig! Was kind of like digging at the beach with a shovel, I figured I use some of the rocks I found digging for the waterfall, edges, etc---I never found any! Lol anyway I built the top pond that the waterfall falls into about 6 ft wide by 5 ft long, and a depth of about 18". The bottom pond is 11ft long by 8 ft wide...with depth from a bog shelf at 9', first shelf at 12-18" and the bottom shelf at 24"-30". the Stream was dug at only about a foot and the dirt used to make banks. The Thought was for a waterfall into a pond, dropping down then into a stream that feeds the bottom pond
