There is a reasonable article on Pond Design in the latest issue of Compact Equipment Mag. I can scan it if someone is interested.

Man now thats what I call a garden pond, natural drainage is the best way to go. Do you have rocks? I had to buy mine. By the time a rock get to Southeast Ga it is sand unless it comes by Truck. My son and I built ours ponds. Digging in red clay involves a lot of elbow grease. best of luck if you need some what not to's let me know. ....

SG8, we have no firm plans but are thinking something roughly in the 35-40 foot diameter area. The best place for a pond here is where the septic system is :( We're on top of a hill so our placement options are limited. But my wife wants one and it would be a nice addition. I'd like to draw in more wildlife and that seems like a good way to do it. ....

Ken

I was on a 5yr plan to retirement when I started pond manafactureing. I am not in any hurry. Take your time and have fun. Concrete and the use of forms realy help with placement of the rocks and water falls. Dig it deep as your pocket book will allow. When you start let me know. ....

I have a pond at home and it seriously needs some new designs. I hope that you will be able to scan that pond magazine issue. I would really like to see that in order to get some ideas and to be able to start designing. :) ....
