Chris when you dig a pond for people does anyone request a deep hole in the middle ot to one side? I know where I'm at in Iowa/Minnesota area the ponds are irregular and have a deep hole dug for fish. Also many have some big bolders and or stumps standing up. Just curious as I watch you build these ponds.

Mud is way too dignified a name for the stuff Chris digs from these “ponds”. We need to call it what it really is: goo, glop, muck, sludge. When Chris is working his magic on one of these projects, I propose we assign him and the 220 alter egos/names. His new persona should be Muck Man, and the 220 should be called “The Sludge Hammer”! Who’s with me?

Do I get the feeling that your heart is not really in this project Chris or have I got that wrong????????? Despite your comments on how little you will be able to do with the site I am confident that you will work another of your "miracles" and present an acceptable pond scheme at the end of the day. As usual you get us all to keep watching just to see how you are going to achieve your goal. Stay well and safe my friend. Cheers from Scotland.

How do you decide how deep to make the bottom of the pond? Is it decided before you start digging or is it based on soil conditions you find when you start?

You’ll be surprised on how fast that mud will dry out by getting it dug up out of the ground and smeared around and piled up because it’s real sandy so Chris will be able to come back in August September and October which is your three driest months of the year and will be able to drive his skid steer or or possibly his dozer around the top and grade it out but anyway Chris another great video and you and John and yawls family all stay safe and Can’t wait till tomorrow’s video
