My buddy Billy bought a Kubota backhoe/frontend loader tractor and needed a place to practice digging. "Come on over", I said as I pinched myself..."this can't be happening." Well, Billy got plenty of practice...poor guy. We cleaned up the shooting range, moved a dog kennel, fixed the family campfire spot, freshened up the driveway, dug up and dragged away a big tenacious oak stump, and dug this small pond next to the main pond. Within a day or so my son and his buddy had built this platform for high jumps into the still muddy water. As far as this pond goes, this is a "before" picture of it in it's current raw state. My plan is to construct a wetland with blueflag iris, pickeral weed, duck potato, etc. I will keep posting this project as it progresses.
