Yes it is,mine will look more like it after this fall.I am going to lift the edges of the liner and blend the contour or the underlaying groundwork to get a more natural slope.In this way the liner will not be visible and will also be more durable due to none of it being exposed directly to sunlight or the sharp edges of ice.
i would never have that piece of wood like they do though.That is a perfect perch for a predator to set comfortably and wait.
