That could suck if the land is too wet your mower will sink. I got my mower stuck in a ladys back yard 2 feet away from a stream, the ground was so soft my tires sank about 8".

WAIT!!! You're going to mow that drained pond with your Metro???? You'll wreck the mower! Did you mean you're mowing a lawn that is near the pond?

By the looks it was a shallow pond, now would be a great time to clean it out and make it a little deeper with some natural structure for fish

looked like more of a mosquito bed than what i would call a "pond". I'm looking at the sides and can't tell where the bank is that would have held water anyway? Maybe the pictures are taken at the wrong perspective ?
