Pond landscape help!!
January 9, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We have just purchased a home with 1/2 acre spring fed pond that is very low due to the water finding an "unofficial" drainage spot next to the overflow drain, as seen in this picture. We'd like to fill it back up. What do we do? Fill this spot around the pipe with concrete to dam it up? This is the view from our driveway, too. We are concerned it is eroding under the driveway! Help!!

Might be good to talk to a geotech to figure out what is happening before you do anything else.

If you dam it up it will go,somewhere else but you have no idea where. I would certainly bring in a professional for this.

Since it's a natural pond, you need a pro to help you figure out what went wrong and what needs to be done to repair it.
