The pond digger in place can be the answer to the sustainable garden irrigation needs of a small farm. Using groundwater for massive irrigation systems has resulted in the long-term depletion of groundwater reservoirs, which wells for running dry. Waterproofing systems using rainwater and natural surface water flow allowed the farmer. In every small farm or agricultural situation, a pond is the ultimate multifunctional. Proper planning from the beginning is important for a sustainable.

Plan and building
Determine your needs. Will your dust be used to deliver a single irrigation system? For several irrigation systems in different areas? For irrigation and livestock watering? Your needs should play a major role in your pond location and design. Determine the desired location. A pond digger cannot be at the top of a drain, but rather must be in a position that can catch water from an upward line or existing spring. An uphill slope of irrigation systems will give least resistance to an irrigation pump, but a pond in a natural depression utilizes the natural topography and has a greater chance of catching natural water flow.
Inspect your soils. Dense soils such as clays or silt keep the water much better than a loose clay soil. If you have no areas with such soils, consider taking in a layer of clay to seal the bottom of your dust and prevent leakage. Design your ideal the pond digger based on your farm topography. Natural slopes above the pond can provide a water source if used for direct water in the pond casing. A narrow, deep pond also keeps algae under control, although water levels begin to drop in dry weather, as shallow water is more likely to have algae issues.
