Well after a three year fight to buy the land that is bordering mine I finally managed it!!!
Now you have heard of Jensen’s pool, well I was a bit jealous so I am trying to create “Percy’s Puddle”… approx. 450 Mr 2 and 1.5 meters deep.
The fences came down on Friday and a 5mr square test hold dug on the highest point of the lake. After six hours it was looking really good and after 24 even better (wet weather though so we will see in summer)
I am digging a hole to about 4 meters to place a pump in – that should help in summer as this is well below the ground water level.
Today was spend fencing the whole ground (darned dog :-() and marking out the lake.
I will post updates next week when the digging starts. (the photos speak for themselfs realy..)
Any tips are welcome.
