I now have the liner up and under the top pond.
The bottom pond is just dug out around a foot now ...not to deep so i can still run in there with the skid steer loaded with rocks
I,m going to do most of the water falls before i dig the bottom out
I,m ready for coments ...Daner

The liner that i have for the bottom pond Is 20'x 25'
Those big rocks that i pulled out ...will be set around the liner to enhance the landscaping. Do you like the Idiea of using that small pond up at the top??...It will be suronded all by natural rocks off the land...and i plan to cut an opening with the jig -saw to let the water pour out.

I do think it'd be sweet if you had the old pond up on top but I woudln't cut er too much cuz I would think it'd be hard to keep the flow nice and steady. Or am I off here And what about the pump(s) and hoses? All new? How will that play into your design?

how many GPH is your pump? that will determine how big to make the lip. I would defintely start small, you can always widen it if its pushing too much over and spilling. Figure 1200-1500gph for every 1' of lip 1" tall.

Problem with that might be kinda hard to make the cut once it's in place and full of water. I think he needs to guesstimate it right the first time. I guess it woudn't be that hard draining it and pulling it out to recut but if you're like me you don't wanna do too many do-overs!

Good luck, keep the pics coming! Looks great so far.

id add some sort of slope to those edges to insure the water does not leak out the edges.
