Peaceful Swim Pond: Before

Who: Jennifer H.
Where: Thonotosassa, FL

After doing research on "swim ponds," we came up with a general plan. Digging out the area was the hardest part. It's hard-pan clay about a foot and a half down. We tried a backhoe, but it broke! Only a pickax would do the job. We dug out the area and created plant shelves and the rim of the pond. Then came purchasing the pond components, such as the liner, pump, plants, gravel, rocks, and fish.
