Hi all,

We're designing our house-site on our Tennessee property. Cliff Davis from Spiral Ridge Permaculture helped us think about how to place the home so that we could use slopes and the lane/driveway for a pond south of the house. I'm interested in learning more about ponds, construction, design, that kind of thing. Do you have a favorite book or video or go-to resource? I appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks, James! I'll check it out. I'm really enjoying the water retention youtube video, Wayne.

I found a link to David Pagan Butler's youtube channel on another permie thread about natural pools. His content isn't directly related to my question, but I'm really enjoying his videos - he's a hoot!
