The overflow for our pond had gotten to the place it needed maintenance. That is one of the problems with a grass waterway. If it does its job the grass holds sediment, which then forces water around it negating its effect. So we did some looking and measuring and figuring and called Robert to bring his play toys.
He did some pushing and digging and rebuilt the waterway
After he finished shaping it we seeded it,
harrowed it in,
And put down a straw blanket.
and Voila! a new waterway is made.
This weekend we had rain, so we'll we how it works.
