We are currently building a "tiny house" (kind of, under 1000 sq ft.) in AR and it is almost finished. The yardwork is almost finished as well (flowers, trees, etc) the acres of the property is 30 acres so a bunch of room to make mistakes lol, untouched land to garden calls. We hope to make a U shaped pond in the NEAR future, we have it layed out with spraypaint, etc. Goal is about a month we will get it started, started as in digging... Hand digging in Arkansas with a spud bar. Hard living... Anyway I will post a pic of the pond layout once I make a journal, pond will be Planted, submersed and emersed plant, will be HUGE, unique shape (U), and like I said submersed and emersed planted. Why submersed? im addicted to freshwater plants, I have Dutch Aquascaped high tech aquariums myself so I must have some sort of piece of the pond to my own... or for the plants LOL Glad to be here, and hope to stay for a long time.
