To complete the aesthetics and functionality of the new pond, we undertook the planting of 23 trees strategically placed around the pond. An additional shade tree was planted up near the house to make the initial presentation of the property more bucolic. Below are some pictures of the new trees.
The electric will be installed in a few days and then connected into the house's circuit panel. There will be outlets mounted into an exterior service panel/box right next to the picnic area.
The power is necessary to run an aeration system for the pond that we will install next spring. It will also allow for kitchen type appliances to be used in the warmer weather when picnics shall abound. A little music will add to the ambiance of a leisurely summer day spent down on the farm. Possibly some lights in the evening for a little night fishing. Whatever the use, the power will be real handy.
