    I just dug a 4' by 5' deep hole in my backyard. Unfortunately, it's not for a pond. It's for a drywell so we can divert some rainwater from the roof away from the house. lol

    Perhaps next year I'll be able to begin work on my pond and I look forward to posting in this forum then.

    Collecting rain water is great for your tank. ;D

    I don't think that is a good idea unless the entire area of the hole is covered with a tarp or something to keep the water in without turning it into a mud puddle.

    lol, it's just to keep the water from my house. Last weekend we had a monster rain storm with 3+" and some water got in downstairs thorugh a crack. I spent last week digging trenches and the giant hole so that that water would stay away from the house.
