The Customers’ Backstory  

Delving into the backstory of our customer, Michael. He has been the proud owner of this Mounds property for several years, establishing a deep connection with the land he calls home. The pond, a longstanding fixture on the property, is conveniently visible from his house. Simply, it’s a sweet main focal point for his property.

Originally intended as a tranquil retreat and occasional water source for his small herd of free-ranging cows, the pond gradually became a source of concern. What began as minor issues, such as incomplete water retention and occasional seepage, gradually snowballed over time. The encroachment of unchecked vegetation and organic matter around the pond gave way to an even more daunting challenge: the infiltration of these elements into the pond itself. Compounded by the accumulation of muck and silt over the years, the pond’s condition deteriorated significantly. It evolved into a murky, shallow, and increasingly unmanageable body of water, reaching a point where its problems could no longer be overlooked.

Michael’s foremost concern was the noticeable water level problem, which drew his immediate attention. While he acknowledged the accumulation of various other issues over time, including rampant overgrowth in both vegetation and muck, he prioritized addressing the water level problem as the critical first step in tackling the pond’s challenges.

Vision for this Pond Renovation + Planning & Designing.

The objective was clear: Michael was determined to secure the services of a pond and lake specialist with a laser focus on addressing his unique set of challenges. His criteria were stringent, seeking an expert who not only possessed in-depth diagnostic capabilities, but also held a strong reputation and track record in this specialized field. He was set on avoiding generic dirt work companies or those offering a broad spectrum of services. Instead, he sought the absolute “best” in the realm of acreage ponds and lakes. After thorough research, he identified our team as a perfect match for his priorities and values, entrusting us with the task of diagnosing, restoring, and enhancing his cherished pond.

Ryan traveled from Kansas City ➡️ Mounds, Oklahoma, to complete a comprehensive property assessment. His first step involved a productive in-person meeting with Michael, during which they further explored the array of possibilities on-site, ensuring they aligned harmoniously with Michael’s budget, values, and objectives.

Our investigative process left no stone unturned, encompassing a range of meticulous inspections. This encompassed a detailed topographical survey of the land using drone technology, thorough soil sampling and analysis, a meticulous drainage inspection, and an overall general on-site assessment. Moreover, historical research into the region, including rainfall patterns, was conducted to gather vital insights.

By synthesizing this wealth of information and insights from our investigation, Ryan diagnosed the pond’s water retention and seepage issues, laying the foundation for a tailored and effective solution. 📐🌿💦

Discoveries & Diagnosis.  

Throughout our investigations, we unearthed some crucial insights. The primary issue stemmed from a significant leakage problem originating from the dam. Furthermore, the dense vegetation and trees surrounding the pond had been voraciously absorbing excessive water, exacerbating the water level issues. Evidently, the pond’s original design had several critical flaws that needed addressing.

Our proposed solutions were comprehensive and tailored to rectify these issues. We recommended completely removing all surrounding trees and vegetation, followed by a thorough muck-out process to eliminate muck and silt down to the pond’s original depth. To fortify the pond’s structural integrity and resolve water retention and seepage concerns, we suggested re-lining it with a substantial clay layer, expertly compacted. In addition, we recommended the installation of drainage swales on specified sides of the pond to redirect water that had previously bypassed it, effectively channeling it into the pond.

As we fine-tuned these proposals, we also explored the possibility of minorly expanding the pond, ensuring that all modifications aligned perfectly with Michael’s foremost priority of addressing the water level issues. The end result exceeded expectations, not only resolving Michael’s primary concerns but also transforming the pond and its surroundings into a rejuvenated, easily manageable focal point on his property. 🌿🌊🏞️
