  • Was the project begun by an actual contractor or was it the landowner, and he's trying to save face by claiming a contactor did it? It seems like such a monumental fuck up...

  • Dear Lord.... It's like someone rented a big dozer and then a mini excavator to dig the small holes. I'm not sure what your charging but it's not enough with all the findings, I've watched the last few first prior to this original mistake pond..

  • my guess is what you call the random pond is about where the owner walked up with possibly a shotgun after seeing the cut he took killing all them trees glad you took pics of that you know better than anyone that homeowners aint the most honest peeps

  • As a semi professional dumbass wrangler, I can explain most, (but not all) the mysteries here. The brush and trees and trash piled into the pond by the previous guy was on the idea that it would be in a nice open area and safe to burn, but of course the weather out ran the idea, and it didn't get burned before everything was to soggy, and/or the guy quit/got fired. The random hole at the end of the pond was a failed attempt to make a catchment to store water and allow the pond farther down to dry out for working. Meant to be filled in again later with the nearby dirt pile,. obviously, that didn't work either, and the guy quit/fired before that undo step. The tree-murdering, I cant really account for, beyond sheer "Them trees'll be fine" dumbassery,. Glad someone competent and skilled is able to fix the mess the dumbass made.

  • Hi Lets Dig 18, Would it be possible to put job name/numbers in the titles, or even something in the thumb nail? You do a lot of jumping around from video to video. At one site one day, and another site another day. It's very difficult to follow a single job from start to finish. A simple job title like 2020-001 Starting On The Pond Disaster Day 1. Or 2020-002 The U-store it job. Cheers, Bill

  • Is that stuff your pulling down, grubbing up river cane ? The stuff you stick pole beans with. I would like to start some of that stuff somewhere. We went to a place on lower Poor Valley creek, we must have cut 200 sticks. I got some for me and my neighbors got some. Has a pickup load. I was told that a man was selling them at the farmers market for a dollar a piece.

  • Never in my life seen such shoddy work...This guy didn't have a clue about how a pond is constructed ...He must have been a good scam artist rented a machine moved some dirt to make it look as though he was building something to the untrained eye then ran off with the money...They hired the right guy to fix it...!!! You sir are the kind of person I would enjoy working with ..Step one have a plan of attack step two adapt to the situation ...Your Name is attached to every job you perform which tells a story about the person..We have never met but your videos tell me alot about who you are as a person..Keep your integrity Chris..!!!
