We are buiding new 1 acre kidney shaped pond in texas. We are haring we need shelves, and brush cover and slopes in it. We are new to designing a pond so if anyone has expeirence with this, advice is greatlly appreciated! What depth should the main shelf be at? Deepest areas are 12-15 ft.

Also Do we need to weigh down the trees when we put them in after excavation?

We put a 10' wide 30 yard long shelf in our new pond at 5 1/2'-6' deep in one corner and are shooting pea gravel over it. Should make a good spawning area and at that depth cattails should not ever be a problem.
Anything you put in a pond that can/could float you should anchor, also keeps it from ever moving. I like to use cinder blocks even new ones are cheap tied with stainless steel wire so it won’t rust or break.

Be sure that whatever you buy will work at depth (under water pressure)

What part of TX - east is very different than west same with south vs north.
