Digging & Preparing
Use tractor backhoe to dig basin for water and trench for pump’s electrical chord.
Line basin with sand and heavy pond liner.
Overlap top surface by six inches and secure with large, flattish stones.
Run pump chord through PVC pipe for protection and to make replacement easier.
Create waterfall with weir, plastic box with lip that spills water back into pond.
Run plastic tubing to carry water from pump to weir.
Use tractor loader bucket to move stones and backhoe’s mechanical thumb to place them.
