I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

Get Smashed (Pond Destruction) 002

 

When we bought our house it had a “nice” cement pond. The pump hadn’t been turned on in years and the water was muck. There was rocks and bricks in the pond.

We thought we would restore the pond.

We were looking up videos and remedies for the pond situation.

Then we realized it had a crack.

Then we realized the lot next door was up for public auction.

Then we “won” the lot next door.

Then we realized, really the only way to get from one lot to the next was directly over the pond.

Pond had to go.

The work went really quick after that and we were able to enjoy a good dinner afterward. Well really we had to wait around till dinner because we finished much more quickly than we had expected!
