Dam progress 2

As you can see the dam is coming along, the grass on the bank is doing ok it would do better if I fertilised it however some of that nutrient would flow into the dam and contribute to the growth of algae, there will be enough nutrient in the water that enters the dam because it comes mainly from farm land.

In the foreground you can see native grasses that we planted today this grass is by far the best way to filter water.

Also in the video you can see a soaker hose secured to the dam floor this will act as an aerator once the dam fills.

We have not had enough rain to fill the dam yet however both of the bowls are holding so we wait for rain.
