The beginning of a couple of ponds and a dry rock bed!


I know this won't look like much but I like to post as we go...the past had pictures of the empty, washed away yard. Then pictures of area's that have had weeds removed, plants thriving...though they still need color, just waiting for September. Now the pictures of the digger leaving us the START to a dry rock bed, to control the water that washes our yard away...and the 2 small goldfish ponds. I can't wait to show you the finished project...what am I saying? I can't wait to see that myself, haha!
path way has been dug out out from the pergola down to what will become 2 small ponds with lil' waterfall...in the front of the picture you can see a little bit of the dry creek bed that will run from the top of the yard...down!

the first picture was from the ponds  up to the pergola and house...this one is across the other way where the path will end at the gazebo..hoping you can see 2 holes, bigger 1 and smaller one, in between will be a bridge.

    Thanks to all of you that commented. I'm sorry it took so long to respond. Work always gets in the way of my fun, hehe. My husband will know the gallon size and has the pumps purchased. I actually don't know. I'll tell you sometime next week for sure though. Just finished extending the deck out to the edges of the pergola so lining the dry rock bed and starting the ponds next.
