From the backyard farm pond of Darrell Rhoades:

Dear Respected DIY’er,

Have you ever wondered why so many of us get totally pumped to start building a farm pond and yet, never get the project off the ground? Well for starters, finding all the information needed is not an easy task. Researching the pond building market can be quite unbearable. Pulling it all together is even worse. Finding a few steps here, a couple of more over there, but ultimately leaving you to fill in the blanks. What a nightmare.

The truth is, most so claimed farm pond building instructions leave out critical elements that you cannot afford to miss.

Are you left wrestling with all kinds of questions?

– How do I actually build one?

– How big should I make it?

What equipment do I need?

– What steps are the most important?

– How do I keep the water from turning green?

– Where would be the perfect location?

– Why would I consider a fence and is one required?

– Will it attract mosquitos, and if so, what then?

– And so on.

Simply put, I hold nothing back.

Soon you’ll be extremely blown away knowing you have just landed on a farm pond building “How To” instruction manual that will inform you every step of the way in creating your very own desired sanctuary.

  • Your farm pond will be the focal point enhancing not only your property but the neighborhood itself.
  • Your neighbors will be turning green with envy watching your family take full advantage of each beautiful day and evening.
  • Your final result will award you deep gratification, serenity, peace and tranquility, year after year.

But most of all…

>Your pond will attract different forms of wildlife to simply gaze at daily, no matter what the season.

>Your home will be the meet up spot of choice for family and friends, lasting generations.

>Your stress level will drop quicker than anything you’ve ever experienced.

>Your quiet time with loved ones gathered around the pond will become your most cherished memories.

>Your pond will create a natural, entertaining atmosphere your kids and grand kids will never,ever forget.

My Goal is to assist in obtaining your beautiful farm pond to create and enjoy the atmosphere you intended it for… experiencing lasting, prized memories for a lifetime.

By following my in-depth process, you’ll be amazed at what you didn’t know… and what you can create and design.

Hi Darrell! Just wanted to give you a big “two thumbs up”
on your new book. I didn’t realize all the preparation
that goes into a farm pond before you even break
I’ve never ran across a book like yours.
And thanks for laying it out in a simple, entertaining
fashion that
even I can understand.
All my best to you,
Joni Beadle-Canton, Ohio

Chances are this “How To” guide will be completely different from what you thought. Explaining the foundation– from the beginning stages–to your impressive end result.

Let me expose now theHottest secret to a very successful pond:
You Must Start With “The End In Mind
Or Struggle
Through The Entire Process!

1) Unless you know for certain what your pond is to be used for, annoyance will certainly take the place of excitement leaving you disappointed, confused and angry.

2) Unfortunate mistakes and unnecessary set-backs will erupt putting you hundreds-even thousands of dollars in the hole.

3) Feelings of failure, dissatisfaction and surely the wind will be taken out of your sails when your farm pond doesn’t match your desired intentions.

This is a major problem

Maybe you want to fish – swim – add brilliant colored Koi – use water for livestock – firefighting or orchard spraying…whatever you want it to be, you’d better know right from the beginning.

Scenario #1

Unprepared, you start digging a hole, realizing it’s too small.

To increase the size can be very difficult, expensive and a lot of wasted time and effort.

Scenario #2

After your farm pond is finished, you start noticing the water is turning green.

I see this happen over and over again. Many farm pond builders miss this step by not having the “end in mind.” This can be totally avoided right from the beginning.

Planning your farm pond with the “end in mind” should not be a difficult task. This process furnishes a roadmap of your desired result when it’s time to start breaking ground. Put some serious thought in the reasons why you’re building it in the first place. Question your neighbors, spouse and other family members and listen to their feedback.

And Then…

Mold Your Ultimate Farm Pond Vision Into Your Reality

A number of items you “must know” and address:

*Have you considered your neighbors feelings in regards to addressing safety issues? What about their children and pets? How will this affect them?

* Do you know what permits you’ll need if any and where to get them?

* Do you know what information you need to give the zoning officer?

* Have you contacted your home owner’s insurance company or even know why you need to?

“Before Darrell started building his pond,
he came over and asked if we had any concerns.
He’s the kind of guy who is very safety oriented,
compassionate and cares about others.
We welcomed the pond,
adding value to our neighborhood.
The pond is absolutely beautiful to look at
and my kids enjoy using it when I give them

Lisa, a neighbor

As I’ve stated, proper planning your farm pond is major. You must have all these critical pieces in place before the project starts. This is where I come in.

I’m qualified in the farm pond building market. I’ve done the entire process myself not only once…but twice.

Yep, 20 years worth -asking questions – research – building an immeasurable amount of anticipation to transform my backyard into a stay at home “vaca” spot. I had a pretty good plan of what to do. But…how do I actually build one? I didn’t find any processes on the Net or anywhere else. Fortunately I had a cousin who has built them in the past- ready to lend a hand.

This is where my “How to Build a Farm Pond, The How To” Instruction Manual becomes your #1 resource and best friend in lending you a hand. This exclusive guide takes out all the guess work… Preparing, planning, getting started and watching the evolution of the pond take shape until you attain your desired goal… step by step.

My name is Darrell, an avid nature lover and family man. Loving the water, wildlife and watching my pond mature is something I can’t even describe. And you should see the sunrises and sunsets…a bit humbling I have to admit.

When I was young, my Grandparents had a creek which we built a dam up every year… that is until we got in trouble with the environmental guy. My cousin’s lived on a farm. Yep, had a farm pond we’d play in all summer long. After I was married I had a swimming pool of my own. We had parties and invited the family over on numerous occasions.

But something was calling me back to build my own farm pond. My boyish memories had a choke hold on me, wanting to keep the pond tradition going for my family.

Right now, I’m looking at my own scenic paradise. After a long days work, I come home – see what has grown – losing myself by taking in all that I’m blessed with. What a spectacular setting.

Straight up, I don’t know how I ever lived without it.

I’ve been a DIY guy all my life; from building my house, the decks, the barns and I’ve even restored a 1959 ford panel truck. Yes, I have made many mistakes along the way, trying to figure things out and learned many hard lessons from each and every project.

Building a Farm Pond isn’t any different.
But now you can skip the mistakes because I’ve already made them for you!

With the knowledge I have, the hands on experience and the ability of writing in a way you can fully understand,
this my friend is to your advantage.

Here’s why:

When a person gathers knowledge about something they want to share with other like minded people, there are two key ingredients you must get across;

1. You need to fully understand it; the “what it is your learning, but more importantly the “why” of doing it.

2. To actually live it. Go through the process – hands on experience – putting that knowledge into action.

I’ve done both. And so can you. I’m just an average Joe who had a dream, determination and the enthusiasm to get it done and make it my ultimate reality. Now it’s your turn.

Obviously, you’re just like me…wanting to capture just a small piece of nature and claim it as your own.

Hi Darrell: I just wanted to tell you that you’re doing a great job.
Keep up the good work. A lot of things you stand for
( hope, motivation, planning, desire, harmony,
love, faith, enthusiasm, etc.) are in my books.

Pond building does take work. It’s not as easy as it may sound. It took me a long time to get to the point of actually building it. But once I got started…boy, I love those big boy toys!

Listen, I’m not here to toot my own horn. That’s not my style. However, I’ve gone the long haul and can honestly say I’m an accomplished, experienced pond builder. I use my pond for swimming and have a floating dock. I check out all the forms of wildlife it attracts and watch the natural progression that takes place year after year. To me, it’s all priceless.

All my experiences make me want to share everything I’ve gone through with the up and coming pond enthusiast. I know how deeply satisfying, gratifying and proud you’ll feel once your pond is finished.

There’s nothing that compares to it.

As A Result Of Creating My First Pond And Posting My Content and Videos On The Web, Experts Took Notice of Me

I contacted Cary Martin, the Environmental Science Expert, and asked if he’d be interested in doing a 1 day live event hosted by me in my backyard. It was a go. The unbelievable content he delivered to the crowd was amazing. Everyone left with priceless information. What a guy!

Because of my “go-getter” attitude and “down to earth” personality, I was offered to be a distributor for Aqua Control. We all firmly believe in protecting the environment, helping others succeed in improving water quality while enjoying our ponds at the same time.

And then…the most amazing thing happened after my pond was finally brought into existence

Winter came and covered up the chocolate milk colored water. Then spring arrived. The ice melted and left the water crystal clear with the new beginning of life.

The overwhelming feeling of deep satisfaction ran me over like my Ford F-350. I figured out the water itself has a magical effect on not just humans, but wildlife also. So much attraction, so much waiting to be discovered.

You know, owning a farm pond is so much more than having a private oasis to enjoy. All I can compare it to is like having your own pet or kid, watching them grow and mature. Each year has brought new life in the spring, allowing me to observe these critters develop all summer long.

One of the MANY reasons why I built it.

In today’s economy, taking the entire family on vacation is a struggle; expensive, taking the time off work, hiring a pet sitter, etc. But having your own farm pond is like having a resort – a vacation spot all year round.

It’s kind of like being at Sea World – The Zoo – The Pool and even an all Inclusive Spa, relieving stress and leaving your worries behind. And it doesn’t matter what the season…even in the Winter it can be used for ice skating. There are no limits.

My farm pond has been the perfect place for hosting just about every party imaginable; Birthdays, Mom and Dad’s 50th Wedding Anniversary, Memorial Day, just to name a few.

It’s used by me, my dogs and my “little woman” everyday;

– Relieving stress and unwinding

– Discussing all sorts of things while dangling our feet in the water off the dock or drifting on our floating dock

– Watching the water garden grow

– Checking out the colorful Koi

– Even solving simple problems that need attention

Heck, you could even host a wedding with a picture perfect view instead of the traditional indoor ceremony.

And check this out…Did you know this?

The very sound of water has been used for healing the mind and body

Many Doctors today conclude water is a form of energy and absorbs vibrations of sound around it. Now, combine the sound of the rippling pond with the reflection from the clouds, the sun or the moon while watching the trees dancing on the water’s surface. I’d have to agree the sights and sounds can have a positive overall healing effect…wouldn’t you?
