New Pond, Part 1.

8 comments


Hi everyone I have been busy and my Husband too, the old pond I dug out and line with pond liner had a hole in it somewhere so thought a preformed on would be nice, phew, didn’t realize what I was letting ourselves in for as I wanted it raised with new railway sleepers round it.
First Pic is of the Old One and the rest is shown in stages as we went along.


Almost finished, just got to fill in between the pond and sleepers with soil and shingle then plant up with low rockery plants and some small rocks.

End of Part 1.

Thank You Bjs. I've got to get some Rockery plants from my neighbors now to finish off, then think about what to do with the border behind as I want to be able to walk round the back of the pond, I would like a palm tree I think between the Fern and the Hydrangea also sort the pump out, I would like Barry to make a little house for it, we'll see lol.
