    I got a can of white spray paint and marked out my lawn.
    That was the easy part.
    Now for the next step. Digging it out.

    My folks had one but it wasnt that deep and racoons kept eating the fish and chewing off the legs of turtles. If you get one, make sure its deep enough so the fishies can hide from the sneakers.

    my father has one we built 20 yrs ago when we put addition on shop.we piled up the dirt and dug a pond, his has about a 12' water fall running down into the pond. way more work to take care of it than its worth in my mind. i'm with bennie on this one, my water feature is a 18x32 inground with a whirlpool and fountain. not to much work to take care of and i can jump in when i get home on a hot sucky day. spent 4 hours in it on the 4th with my 8 yr old. could not do that with a pond.

    At my old house I had one, it was pretty much just a real deep hole with some goldfish in it. I had to throw some algea stuff in it every once in awhile and that was it.

    I guess it depends on what you want on how much work it would be.

    Sounds like a real humm-dinger of a project there Ed. I hope you didn't spill your beer, painting that kidney shape on your back lawn

    The only water feature I'd want in my back yard is a hot tub!

    Of course I do. That was a joke. I was afraid I was going to fall into the neighbors yard after a few beers.

    Okay, then, you're excused. I thought you were going senile there for a minute.

    I looked on the web and can rent a Dingo, a walk behind digger, for a pretty decent rate, like $170/day.
    Could easily dig a pond out in 1 day, and save my old back wear and tear.
    Whadda ya think, ever use one, they look cool.
