Hey everyone. Getting my feet wet in this whole pond building thing. Nothing built yet, but on my way. After a very non-chalant promise to my wife to build her a water garden, I quickly realized it was not just dig a hole and turn on the water faucet. So anyways... off we go to start the addiction!
Here's the initial plan, the okie way!

welcome and remember best view area and also ease of running electricity and if you are going to add electric put it on it's own breaker and add more outlets than needed .1 time bill and no return bill from your electrician /My son did mine and put the outlets on switch's so if I have to turn them off it is easier especially when my steps may get icy .He told me he loves me and sure does not want to get a call that I have fallen because of the pond

That’s how my pond happened. Had the idea. Told the husband and before we knew it we were in over our head but fully committed. Can’t wait to see the finished pond! This forum is invaluable as far as helpful advice, encouragement and honest feedback. Good luck.

Welcome! I’m glad to see I’m not the only okie here! I used a hose to get a layout for the pond I’m digging now, it gives nice natural curves.

Good look with the build. It's a great feeling when done and all the hard work (digging) is done. Please post a pic or two when done.

It took just over 2 months, but the whole things is done! Still need to call the electrician out to run a dedicated line for the pond (currently using an extension cord :unsure:), but other than that, we're up and running. Thank you everyone for your support!

You know what they say, "Show me pictures or else it never happened!" ;)
