Water Gardening - Digging

Notes: Remember that shelf height is determined by the desired water level. It is better to dig too shallow than to dig too deep and have to fill back in.

  1. Lay out the area using a rope or a garden hose.
  2. Use Spray paint to more permanetly mark the shape.
  3. If the area is level dig down to the first shelf. Dig 2 to 3 inches inside of the marked area.
  4. Mark the shelf area and dig down to the nest shelf.
  5. Repeat the above steps untill the entire pond is dug out.
