In early June we reviewed the erosion caused by the wicked winter and the spring rains and started to, with a hand shovel, shape the dirt walls and the shelf on which the wooden wall will sit.

We also cleaned most of the big rocks out of the bottom of the pond.

It started to take shape and looked much neater and cleaner after the winter.

And then we began to put in the carpet which will protect the liner from rocks and roots.  We collected some of the carpet last year and stored it.
