Very wise decision, especially in Phoenix.

You can always take a few thou off the price of the house and let them fill
it in themselves.

If we, or I, ever have to sell this place I plan to pull off the filters and
nets and get rid of the fish. I'll make the ponds look as natural as
possible and hope for the best. If that doesn't work I'll knock off a few
thou and let the buyer worry about filling the ponds in. If that also fails
I guess I'll have to get a few loads of soil and hire someone to fill in
the two holes and level the ground.
As we get older we're finding these ponds to be a bit much work. Add a
little burn-out after 13 years. We've been talking about getting rid of the
fish and filters and letting nature have the ponds.......

For those of you who filled in a concrete pond- what steps did you take? I just posted a query about selling with a poorly made pond, and I'm now convinced that it needs to go away.
My half-formed plan is breaking the concrete into pieces and adding a French drain to divert the massive amounts of water from Seattle rainfall and runoff from the hill behind us, but it does worry me to think of NOT having that 'holding tank'.
If you've successfully removed (or filled) a concrete in ground pond- how?
