A new pond in progress

As you can see we have had a frenzy of activity going on here over the long weekend. Our lovely smooth green lawn you see at the beginning of my blog has been excavated, leveled and a circular hole has been dug to prepare for a new pond.

The land previously sloped away from the top lawn. New top soil has been brought in to create a flat level for the new pond. Stone steps will be built to transition down to this new level.

It's amazing what a difference it makes. Although quite messy I can appreciate the effect these design changes will make. I am looking forward to seeing it green again, which could take a while.

sometimes big machinery is needed to do the job!

The hole is complete, now for the rock work and pond building to begin. Some how I feel the hard part has not started yet. Will keep you posted with the progress.
