Finished the whole digging of the pond. Today will complete the settling tank hole. Hopefully, from Monday onwards can give my full time to look into the completion of this project.
Will start on the bog setup from Monday. Any suggestions are most welcome. I am a lil confused with what I should build a bog. The area between the pond and the plastic tank is where I want to have the bog camouflaged with the surrounding as a small waterfall back into the pond.
Here are some pics.... Cheers guys... Thank y'all for your support and encouragement :D

Update for the day....

Obvious thing are not obvious after all.... My luck on finding a bog bin still continues... To find any kind of troughs is tuff... Have options of getting a cylindrical tank and cutting, two things... First, I don't prefer the shape.. Scnd, not ready to dig a bigger hole in my pocket than I already have... Contemplating building one and use some liner or flex material or get a custom made cement tank ( guess the last one is pricey ) well let's see what's gonna happen...
Will receive the bottom drains tmrw, so the settling tank will be placed with the drain installed and refilling of the excess soil as well.
I was lil apprehensive of digging the pond with such close proximity of the house foundation wall... So decided to reinforce the pond walls in a traditional way of mud layering and topped it with cement water. This gives me a sort of satisfaction and peace of mind. So here are some pics of progress....

Cheers,

Najib
