I will deffinetly be checking to make sure im following all of the regulations tommorow. Say there are no restrictions what type of rock would you use? Also as far as excavating what all procedures are there to doing this? The neighbor has theres done and the ground appears to be at the same slope. Am I suppose to dig out a spot at the edge of the water? Sorry for being such a green thumb to this but gotta start somehwere.
