I've got a idea for a nice outdoor swimming hole and i'm gathering up all the information I can before I make any moves. It might even end up smaller than 1/5 of a acre, as I read that is about 8k sq feet or 4x the size of my house. Any thoughts on that? Also What are we thinking for equipment? Rental Kubota mini-excavator or a skid steer? this is all very nebulous at the moment, but I am on a mission to make it a reality.

Dozer does the job quickly


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.

I could see that for sure. I'm gonna probably research it for two years and see what I could come up with. It'd be nice if there was a way I could draw it out and submit it online somewhere for someone to look at it that is a expert. Any ideas? I could even take a few pictures. Would it be worth having a operator do it if its just a small pond. Might be able to knock it out in a day on a dozer?
