  • Chris, the drone shot before and after really help! I think where you crossed the road (at the top and said you might put in some rock and a 6" pipe) is essentially the high point on the property. Would be interesting for you to draw in a arrow or two on the last drone flight to say which way the water is running. Very dramatic to see how watery it was before and how usable it looks now. Great example of what you can do.

  • What's the purpose of the pond? Someplace for water to drain to? Just to have one?

  • I could do projects like this all day every day. When I look at my own property and go back to what is was prior to my wife and I buying it and working on it to now it's a great feeling. What started out as 35 acres of "wild" or "natural" forest has turned into our home "compound" out in the woods. The clearing, running the chainsaw and burning was hard work, but to me it's my "therapy" to get away from the nonsense of today's world.

  • Love your videos! I haul a 35 gallon water tank in my pickup, with a pump up lawn and garden sprayer and I use them to give my equipment a field douche.

  • I don't know the landowner's intent for the pond, but if they have fish in mind, 5 foot isn't deep enough. Round these parts we call a 5 foot body of water a swamp. Great job of draining the area and the clearing. That's going to make a really nice building site, nice work!

It will be really interesting seeing how you will just move the dirt into a nice large but low mound that will make a great horse pasture or anything like that. Really, really nice project Chris. Just 2 machines and not so much time and all that’s been completed. Very impressive!!

  • Always hard to get the tracks clean, a man was killed locally a couple of years ago, he had lifted one track and was running that track while shovelling but the track must have caught him and pulled him in - so stay safe Chris.

  • @Letsdig18 Why cant you use the pond dirt to lift up the house lot ? if i were to build a house in a swampy lowland id look forward to raising the houselot higher to have some dry high ground and a nice view couldnt you make a gently sloped hill with the material so the house lot gets risen up by 5 to 6 feet with gentle slopes on all sides id talk with the real estate owner abaut the possibility of - if you already have to haul it around why dont use it on raising the house lot ? would save time and money clearing 2 acres just to spread out dirt and be a ""long therm investment if the ground slopes away from the house itll never have a problem with drainage and standing soil-moisture for dry houses on stable ground hold longer

  • Have you ever thought about getting an Open Bottom Grapple from WR Long in Tarboro NC for your Skid Steer? We use them on our tractors and they sift the sticks and limbs out for cleanup (Ours is hurricane cleanup). They are AMAZING. I don't see that you own anything open bottom like that. Just a thought.

  • Amazing how you can step onto a fully wooded project like that and form an image of where the low spots are, how to get it to drain, etc. How long does that take to form a plan? I'd be walking in circles for days...

    Dave HicinbothemDave HicinbothemMuaj më parë
    • I suspect his before drone videos helps him form that plan. He didn't show the before view of the drone shot at 34:49 but I suspect he may have had similar views with his drone before he started. In his day 1 video of this project, I remember he mentioned one tip. Where there are only small trees, are likely low spots, trees don't like to grow in wet areas.
