Ben's wildlife pond.


Ben's wildlife pond.

This beautiful pond designed and built by my friend and neighbour Ben is only 2 years old. It is designed to be wildlife friendly with shallow sloping sides , a gravel "beach" to allow animals to get out if they fall in and birds and other animals to bathe/drink.

It's about 12 feet by 10 feet in diameter and 3 feet deep in the middle ( so it won't freeze to the bottom in winter) and utilizes a butyl liner

I like that very much Alan it look so natural and none of that horrid black liner to be seen round the edges ..
