Been lurking here for a year and reading a lot.
Tomorrow, the bulldozer comes and by next week, my dream pond will be dug.
I am planning to add a small pier just enough for the wife and I to sit at the end in five or six feet of water.

I would appreciate any tips/advice on construction materials and methods. For instance, can a backhoe push in a piling? Floating vs. fixed?
Thank you all for the distilled wisdom I have found on this forum.

One acre, heavy clay all the way down, surrounded by oak/hickory forest, small watershed, Texas County, MO.
1 acre, brand new this week. Everything else comes next.

Welcome to the forum. I have a floating pier. When the water level drops the pier does too. I like the fact that the distance from the water is constant.

Mine is simple but easy to build and add on to in the future. 4'W x 10'L using 2" X 10"s for frame with decking on top. Anchored at 4 corners by 6"x 6"s bolted to them. Cost about $200.00 to build. It originally wanted to put another 4' L 10' W section bolted to it for a total length of 20' but now I decided to add a 12' x 12'square on it for more room to sit. Nothing fancy but it is strong and functions.
