Preamble:
 

In the summer of 2004, I had the idea of digging a small pond located to the east of the house.

 The pond is on a plateau, just before a small slope.

One dimension ends 30' X 19' (9 m x 5.7 m), the basin has a maximum depth of 28" (2' 4" or 70 cm).

With no mechanical equipment, I began to dig with a shovel round. The shovels were emptied into a wheelbarrow. With this ground, I leveled part of landscape. Here, in this picture, for a simulation, I built a small temporary bridge.

The brightness of the place for the installation of a pond is important. There should be a minimum of 6 hours of sunlight to grow plants.
