    personally I like to add some logs to my streams/ponds if they look natural or weathered. I would keep them on top of the liner, use loam to berm up the sides to contain the water. and lay the liner in a normal fashion. be sure to leave plenty of extra so you can pull it up higher if you need to. Thats one mistake many builders make on their first couple ponds. Some of those monsters with the moss would make great character rocks too!

    I Will be starting this project again ...as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer.

    I put the round up to all those gross weeds up on the hill...that area i want to fill with river rock...I'm not sure what kind of weeds came up with that soil I put In there,but after the round up killed them the stalks were close to 1" thick.

    anyway I know this has dragged out for a while now...but i will post soon...and ask for all your help and suggestions.

    We still have lotsa snow on the ground but its slowly melting away...Be back soon

    Daner

    I am glad you re-opened this thread. Looks like a neat project. Definitely challenging starting with no liner and boulders that large.
