Burgman Building: Landscape Restoration "we have another pond"
We knew there had once been a pond on the North side of the building , we just didn't know where as it had been filled in years ago. Well we found it while clearing out some concrete that was sticking up near our garden spot.
An afternoon spent we had a huge hole and a pile of rocks.
We used the broken concrete and dirt to build a hill for the upper feeder pond and we ran our pump test yesterday to se how it would flow. Next steps are to fill it the rest of the way up and plant some aquatics but I plan on taking it easy today after moving over a ton of stone.
I have been involved in Historic Preservation and Restoration for the last 25 plus years. I am president of Victorian Antiquities & Design. I am proud to be a part of restoring the architectural history of our country.
