Looking good! I still remember digging my pond years ago, that was a lot of hard work! Mine ended up at ~5 feet at the deepest point, but nowhere near as wide as yours is. I think I like the wide look a lot more.

I have to ask though, where did you get the waterfall majigy? I made my waterfall outa pond liner and rocks and have never been happy with it and it looks like the piece you are using would work a lot better than what I have.

i was going to get a waterfall kit but i saw the price for the kit and just chocked i got the waterfall basin at menards for $40 and bought a bulkhead from living arts to run a hose into the bottom of the basin.i took someones advice and went around to the farmers and got all the rock but it took 7 truck loads being that i have a little ford ranger the big rock is close to 300 lbs i know i lift weights and i deadlifted it ito my truck. my pond is only 2 feet deep i didnt want to go deeper because i dont want the city to cite, me right now im just a little deeper then a pool would be that dosnt need a fence around it. I wanted 3 feet but i think i would be pressing my luck
