  • water feature - Landmark Landscapes a lincoln landscaping company
    In the spring of 2010 we set about tearing out all the foundation plantings and hardscaping which surrounded the home We broadened the beds introduced a small water feature and installed new larger areas of pavered patio s and walkways We reconfigured the outdoor lighting and added new We added a fire pit a bridge over a dry creek bed and cleared pathways through the wooded areas for the kids Yet something was still missing Alas after tactful communication and a great deal of begging I convinced my wife that a pond make that a small lake was in order I ve always wanted my own little fishing hole and I just don t have the patients to fish so it needs to be close and I need to get results We also didn t care to mow and we definitely didn t care to water all that grass The planning encompassed installing a 1 acre lake with surrounding wild flower and native grasses in addition to some more naturalistic landscaping This lake would allow for us to harvest rain water which we would irrigate the remaining turf with Prior to excavation We hired Hampton Enterprises to move some of the largest trees so as not to kill them We rented a large excavator from Murphy equipment to handle the primary excavation work I have quite a few years now on excavators and have always felt quite comfortable behind the controls Over the course of 3 long days we displaced roughly 3 000 yards of soil to other locations on our acreage If we were to buy that amount of soil and have it brought in the bill would be a fortune Yet the excess soil was but a by product of the lake The large berms which we built with the excess soil allowed for greater privacy and added interest in the landscape The lake measures roughly 200 by 100 by 20 deep in places I was worried that I might have to line the lake with a rubber liner but at present I feel the lake has a high enough clay content that it will hold water quite nicely We created terraces and sunk various natural elements to provide fish habitat We laid the lake out so it would catch most of our rain runoff and we connected a portion of our downspouts to the lake to conserve that water as well We have since added some 30 or more trees around the lake and have plans for more this spring This will be an ongoing learning experience in keeping the lake as clear as possible The trees will add shade to help combat algae I plan on dying the water as well to help with that cause An aeration system will also be added to help keep the lake as healthy as possible In some of the best swimming areas I intend to add sand for a better feel when walking across the bottom I would be
