Tim Wood’s “Big Pond Transformation for a Small Space” article is the winner of our most recent Contractor’s Corner quarterly contest but, most importantly, with the homeowners of this pond. The article reveals how Tim and crew provided a comprehensive assessment of the failing pond versus an altogether new installation. The owners choose the latter and Tim describes the beginning of the build below:
Fast forward to the build — I have to say that draining that little pond and removing all the goldfish was one of the hardest parts of the job! There was so much leafy debris in the pond that my cleanout pump was continuously getting clogged. Once we finally lowered the water level enough to begin netting fish, we were then hindered by the mass of lily roots and other debris. The rest of the demo was, thankfully, a bit more typical.
Congrats to Tim and Aquatic Edge Pond & Landscape Solutions based in Western Pennslyvania.
