|This is my new truck that my friend gave me.|
I would like to build a small lake out in my backyard. I don't want a pool. I want a more natural swim setting. A small lake with big boulders for sitting on.
This isn't just a pipe dream. I've done my research. Mother Earth News has a great article about the benefits of digging out a backyard swimming hole.
....Unlike an artificial pool, a pond is a unique natural asset which can't be purchased off the shelf and confers status to a property.
I'm not concerned about the whole status thing. I just want to jump off my deck and into my small backyard lake. And I definitely need the boulders. Husbandman's not hip on the idea. Yet. But make plans for next summer my friends. "Heading out to the lake" is going to take on a whole new meaning for all of us.
