I have begun creating the duck pond in the run today. I have a small hill and a 50 gallon pond liner. My plan is going to mount the pond in the middle of the hill and put grass and some tasty plants around it. I will run a drain to irrigate everything and a pump to have a bit of a waterfall. I am going back and forth on filtration but we will cross that bridge when we get to it.
This is what we started with
Cleaning up the hill, that's my little helper
Ran one run of cinder blocks....and then I ran out. dug out the hill a bit so the pond is at least sits in there on its own.
Tomorrow I will lay another round of bricks. I am planning on going as high as the wall (in the background) with a gentle slope on the right for the duckies to get up the hill.
