Phase one of my pond is finished. Yay! That is, the basic, rectangular pond is
ready for fish. Thanks to all of you who offered advice! I especially paid
heed to Lee's warning about getting out of level - I spend an entire day on site
preparation, and the water is level to the top within less than 1/2" over the
entire 20' length of the pond. Final dimensions were 20'L x 5'W x 2.5'D (that's
the water depth, the actual top rail is about 3' high). I did a photo
documentary of the whole contruction process, which I'll put on the web as soon
as I find a place to put it. Dunno if it's appropriate for the NANFA site, but
I think I get some web space from my ISP.
