I've lurked for a couple weeks and decided this was the place for my newbie pond advice. We have a good location for a 1/4-1/2 acre pond on our property and I've got a zillion pond construction questions. I'll be posting them soon, in the appropriate forum of course! Thanks in advance for the advice!

Welcome!

I have property in northern Clark County and Bergman Excavating out of Batesville did a 0.4-0.5A pond for me last year.

I can HIGHLY recommend Doug as a pond builder...he and his uncle Ray have their stuff together.

Owen, I'd recommend you buy & read Mike Otto's book, Just Add Water. Really gets down to nitty gritty of pond construction!

Agree on the book.


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.
