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