We just had the dam between a 12 acre pond and a 10 acre feeder pond completely rebuilt. What are your thoughts on using lime rock to cover the dam to prevent erosion?

If you can afford it, i think it would be great on the slope into the water side. Hay mulch and grass seed on the rest.

I'm agree with Brian, but I would like some grass on the waterside down to about 2 feet of the shoreline, if the slope is gentle enough to be mowed. Walking on rocks is too much risk the older I get.

Welcome to the forums, btw!
Fish on!,
