This is at my house. No real set schedule as I'll pull from it to do other jobs. The pond was part of a seminar I hosted and I'm moving ahead with some other improvements to the property. The pond will be finished tomorrow. The wall is 70' long but I'll have block up before we break for Christmas.

how long did they work on that pond during the learning day, it took the whole day to dig the hole? Are they going to come back to learn how to finish installing the pond?

Those pictures are not of its current state. All thats left is foam and river jack to be put in. They did NOT pay me anything. I hosted for the company that put on the event and had to purchase materials. All I get is free labor in addition to my guys. They paid the company $35 per person, which is nothing. I felt I needed a refresher because I've got customers interested and its been 4yrs since I touched a pond.

As it is now. Put in the river jack, touch up the liner, foam it and fill with water to complete. Everything is frozen and we're working on other things today.

Well, the hardscape has been done for a while but we're waiting for the ground to unlock and dry up a bit to finish everything completely. Stoop turned out real nice making it bigger and using the treads.

Picked up another Bobcat too. This one has pilot controls.
