I started to dig last year and had a Thread "Looking for Input on New Pond". I stopped working on the pond for a number of reasons, but am back at it and starting a new thread. The space I space I have to work with is very limited.
The original look was going tobe 10 x 7 x 4 with an upper pond 10 x 2 x 2 total 2400 gallons.
I am going deeper and higher above ground. 9 x 7 x 6 with an upper 9 x 2 x 2 total 3100 gallons.
I dug the entire pond out by hand and have about 50 hours in digging alone. Five trips to the dirt 101 total weight approx. 30,000 pounds.
