My east Texas pond project has gone nowhere for 2 1/2 months -- too wet! -- so it is good to see dirt being moved. Good luck and keep us posted! grin

This is awesome! How big is your property? I wanted an acre but everyone scoffed when I mentioned it because I only have 12 acres.

Yea I still have plenty of property left, in the pics where the pond is, you are only seeing the back right corner of it. Basic math
10.5 - 1 = 9.5 acres that's still plenty of land for every thing else. I live out in the woods though and no other houses around, so I don't know if that comes into play or not.

The Griff,

I have just over 4 acres of water (one 4 acres pond and one .25 acre mini pond) on just 18 acres of land smile If I could have flooded everything except the house I would have. Or maybe I would have bought a house boat!

Dinsmore,

looks like you are having fun. When it is done, you will be able to look at product you did yourself. May you have many happy memories.

Hey guys! I know it been months but they have had problems finding people to buy the dirt coming out of my pond so they stopped digging, BUT I got to see what water quality I would have when it filled up and it is beautiful!! Also they have started digging again!! so I hope yall enjoy the pics and would love to hear your feedback.

Good for you. Many of us know the excitement of our first pond.

For those of us that don't know our trees what kind of trees are those around the pond?

Are'nt those Long Needle Pines home to a special woodpecker that is/was on the endangered list? Also are they more popular in the northern portion of the state?
