New pond!

14 comments


Finally today was the today we built the new pond! Bought the lining and underlay yesterday and we started at 8:30 this morning and finished at five pm tonight! Over all depth was 2 feet and three feet in the end where the water lilies are! All I have to ddo tomorrow is finish off the log edging! The only curve ball we got was that there was a brick wall and foundation which we had to chip out partially and then cover with underlay and carpet! Next stop new fish next weekend!

Fish safely back in

Yep! They had to be out a little longer than expected but were put back in when the pond was filling up as we had a quick thunderstorm! Then after that finished I did the edging and then the plants

You actually did well getting it finished Dan, looks great. Pleased you didn't have to disturb your planting as they have established themselves well...

Thankyou! And yes it's much deeper and obviously increased in size! Only a few plants to plant when I make some more log edging round the ponds front, will only be low growing so we can see the fish

Wonderful. It that faux pebble liner that I see? If so, I have never seen anything like it.

Yes it is! It lays on top of the pond liner! It's great!

FIDDLESTICKS! This type of liner seems to be only available in the UK. That's why I have not seen it before:(

Aw no! I'm sure there'll be somewhere online, try googling 'oase' or 'Oase living water' they do it and have stores worldwide!

Thank you very much for your recommendation. I'm out of luck, Oase USA doesn't sells everything but pond liners, I even tried eBay, nothing:(
