Like the road screen! Is someone sitting under the dock, or is that all structure?

Just structure, a couple small pex trees created into cinder blocks. And some 6” tile pieces about four feet long stainless steel wired to cinder blocks.

Those BHS look great! So you poured Sonotubes with concrete for columns? I don't think they'll go anywhere for a while !!! I'm guessing a small shelter is going on that slab deck?? Pretty beefy structure you have there. Built to last .........

Thanks Bows, putting a concrete prefab 8’ two step at front of dock so we can get right up on it easy.
Wife wants a gazebo or some type of shelter house but I think she wants it put on the woods side of the pond with a big pavers or concrete as deck.
We will be putting up a good size pole barn in spring. Just framed and skinned at first and I’ll stone the floor pretty quick in it so we can start storing things out there and clean our garage here in town out.

Planted thirty Black Hills Spruce for aesthetics /road/wind screen.
They are 4’-5’ tall and hopefully take off good in the next few years with a little TLC and fertilizer.
Plan is to ad about 10-15 more as we can in the next couple years to thicken it up a little more.
Going to cage them within next few days to keep some crazy buck from rubbing them.


Do you have the mulch pushed up onto the bark of the tree??? Its really hard to tell. I push mine pretty tight, but I dont let it touch the tree bark cause it can cause rot and decay.

Thanks, and yes.
I left a little gap, mulch is really deep to suppress weed/grass growth and to try and help keep moisture.
Where they are planted on spoil pile is almost straight clay with topsoil spread over top. I will be able to water all summer, plan is to get some type of pump and water them right out of pond the first year.
We are also planting 40-50 apple&pear between pond and woods spring 2022 that will need to be watered all summer. Having a pond right there for a water source is a first in my tree planting adventures. Normally I’m filling jugs or buckets and hauling them all over.
