Just hooked my first pond today. Went really smooth. 11'x16' tear shaped pond at the bottom of a 20' stream falling about 4 1/2'. 4.72 ton bolders 2.21 ton gravel for the bottom is that about right? Should I bump this up to a standard pond system or would a mini do the job? Definately going with the 3000 pump, because of the distance and incline. Another thing is price. They were verry understanding that this would be my first one. I gave them a guestimate of $5,500-$6,500, and told them I would have a solid price by Tuesday. They are suppling the top soil and the use of a bobcat if I need it. Any opinions welcome! Even the ones that think I under bid it.
