Building two ponds on a slope, bog pond at the stop (can't be seen so well from our deck) then about 35 feet of stream and waterfalls, into a lower pond. Both ponds around 12-15 long 10 feet wide, 4 ft deep at the deepest spot. Just got all the preliminary excavation done. LOTS or tree roots to cut out. I'm in NH. I'll be looking for advice and ideas. I plan to get the "sculpting" done by winter, then let the berm and ground settle until Spring, then start assembly.

Welcome to the forum!

Building two ponds on a slope, bog pond at the stop (can't be seen so well from our deck) then about 35 feet of stream and waterfalls, into a lower pond.
I built mine on a slope, at the top two deck ponds that waterfall into a 85 or so foot stream, with a few small ponds in the stream. Waterfalls into the big pond. I had to dig down the upper edge of the pond by 4 feet and build up the bogs down slope wall by 7ish feet to make a flat spot. My ponds are about 45 feet from the house at the bottom of our 25 degree slope. I can see the fish from the living room windows.

It was interesting trying to make a flat spot for the ponds and bog.

You must live in the one pocket of NH where you can dig without hitting the state bird " Granite"
