Default How deep is too deep?

"Andrew Burgess" wrote in message
I'm enlarging my pond, going from about 6' x 6' x 3' to
something like 10' x 15'. I thought I go 5' deep this time
but now I'm wondering if 7 or 8 feet is "too deep". Does anyone
have a pond this deep or deeper and do you regret it? Digging
will be more of a chore but you only have to do it once :-)

My philospohy is to pick a length and width that fits the
garden asthetically and then make it as deep as possible.

Thanks for any input.

How deep can you reach and still keep your face above water? Use that as
your guide to depth. Unless you fancy having a pond water facial.
