Job in hand!


In September we had a leak in our pond.Just before we went away in October we realised we needed to replace the liner. Since starting this job the weather has been against us but we have refilled it and we are now in the process of replacing the edging.
I’m really looking forward to Spring time when I will be able to restock it with plants and fish.
I am putting a before and and after photo of the pond and a few flowers which are still blooming !

Sharp stones you dont notice can work their way up under the new liner and puncture it with the weight of the water.
An old ground sheet on top of thick cardboard or similar will protect it. Then put the liner on top.
