I thought y'all might get a kick out of this.
I was curious if others are using this method to build dams. Very little info about small [stone] dam construction on the net. We built it like a retaining wall, and packed small rocks and dirt behind the wall as the stones were laid. It seems to be holding up very well, though we did just get 1.5" of rain and I havent checked it yet.
I expected her to blow on the first rain, you can hear me saying "if this breaks we are going to die" in the video. I really underestimated her!
