“Natural Area” makeover

Our builder left the part of the backyard by the pond as a “natural area”, meaning he didn’t have to fork over money for turf. Rhonda got a plan from a nursery, rented a machine, and went to town making up beds.

I decided we need another one. This one is larger (9 ft x 5 ft and about 22 inches deep) and done with a liner rather than a preformed pond. First, the hole:

That took the whole afternoon. I decided about that time to try to take off another day and get it done.
