Hello All, I have a few questions for you guys... I have a pond on my property that is appox. 100' accross, and round. It is feed by natural springs, and depth goes from 6" to about 6'. It has a drain, and is currently empty. My father used to drain every year, and skim out by hand with a wheelbarrow and shovel . We used to use it for swimming. It has not been filled for about 10 years, and has alot of growth that needed to be cleared. I am interested in getting it cleaned out and filled this year. Do you guys have any suggestions about anything I should do before filling...like a layer of gravel on the bottom, large or small rocks, etc. I perfer not to have to drain out every year to keep it maintained. Thanks in advance.
