My name is Nancy and I was searching lake contractors in Northern Arkansas and found this forum which looks awesome! We live in Texas and are selling our home and moving to Arkansas. We want to build a lake but we want to make sure we do it right the first time. Need to be educated after the pool fiasco we had because I trusted the contractor. Glad To be here!

Welcome Nancy!

Lots of stuff here in the archives. With the planning you are doing, no doubt your pond project will go better than the pool project!

Dang Nancy, leaving Texas and going to Arkansas. Hard to believe.
Step 1. Define your goals.

Step2. See step 1.
It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Welcome! We are here to help you get and manage a very good pond.
Seriously consider getting the two very good books for planning and building a pond. "Just Add Water" and "Perfect Pond Want One" by Bob Lusk and Mike Otto log time pond builder expert. Excellent professional advice and well worth the money to get that well designed and built pond. After you get that pond built be sure to subscribe to Pond Boss Magazine it is a real bargain for all the excellent pond management advice and information. Plus there is available an annual Table of Contents and complete Index for every issue that is listed in our Archives Section.

LOL! Love Texas just not the humidity mixed with the heat. I need a little cooler weather in my elder years. Thanks for the input!
