Around the Bend Strawbale House, Pond and Gardens

Clean up

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 4:34 pm

The bottom of the pond was particularly gross, slimy, smelly, with rotten leaves, frog poop, and dead frogs and other creatures.  But we scrubbed the liner, pumped water and shop vacuumed it spotlessly clean.  And re-homed lots more frogs.

After that we began to refill the pond.  We called the company that drilled our 300 foot well 10 years before. They assured us that, with the depth of our well and our flow rate, we should have no problem filling the pond from the well, saving thousands of dollars having water trucked in.  The water ran for 6 days straight to fill the pond up.
