The ponds during the summer of 2010

...Lots of Boulders, Heavy Pond Liners, Some Water, Big machines, and a Little sweat

...It all began in the spring of 2002. Before a pond or stream could be built, I wanted to correct a house footing drainage system, and the driveway had to be graded so that the slope was away from the house. Yeah, I know. It is hard to imagine that someone would build a driveway that sloped into the house causing a large water problem!

So the drainage and driveway got fixed - more on that later! While that was being done I drew the plans for the stream and ponds.
