25 January, 2022 seen 102In the mid Summer 2016, we did a major task - dug a pond, after pond excavation works we were left with a large hole in…
This morning started with a surprise, I was still sleeping, when my partner awakened me and told - pond guys are digging. I was surprised, because I didn't heard a sound. Maybe I was too tired from yesterday's pond draining or as it turned latter - the modern excavators are quiet.
Anyway, I was not surprised at all - because when pond guys started, they didn't even informed me, see how it started in part 1.
I made (more correct, my partner did it) my morning coffee and took my camera to document the progress.
Excavator digging pond from the road side
I was a bit worried about the road, because we are sharing it with one another neighbor, and few days ago he informed us, that today he will be adding some load of gravel on the road surface. And that for a few hours he will block any access to the road. I told that to the pond guys and they replied with a smile, he will have to wait.
Digging the pond
At the Spring we constructed three greenhouses, and they were actually an obstacle in today's digging works, but we agreed not to touch them.
Excavator demolishing and old buildings foundation
As we had access to the excavator we asked could it be possible to demolish one old and collapsed building. Not a problem for these pond guys. Later it turned out there are huge rocks made in foundation. We will use them as our rock garden. More on that later.
We are almost there
Cats discovered that there is a pond

Now it will take some time for grass to grow in, and a lot of time for water to get the pond level (there are a few underground water sources and a lot of rain/snow waters)
