This was a neat and interesting lake renovation project. The land owner had two, small old pools that did nothing to enhance his property. We removed an old tumble down barn which had outlived its’ usefulness to expand surface area and joined the two pools together into a very attractive lake. One of the challenges was working around existing mature landscaping and making it fit all together as it twined in and out of the trees. The land owner is able to enjoy an exquisite view from his back deck now!

View between the two pools. This area will be excavated and the trees on the right will become part of an island.
The recreation lakes were directly adjacent to a county road. The dirt removed during excavation was used to build privacy berms next to the road.

Work progresses and what remains of one of the existing pools on the left. The area including the trees will become the island.
'After picture' -- same view as picture number one in this gallery. What a huge difference!
Looking southwest past the island. This is all 'new' water. The old barn was removed at the southernmost part of this area. The area recovered quickly due to the care taken during lake excavation to be minimally invasive.

IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, WE CAN BUILD IT!
