lake


lake

This is our lake ,we made it 10yrs ago , we have Mandarin ducks that fly in and nest in our tree boxes , Mallards and Moorhens , also lots of Dragonflies and Mayflies. We love it and just wish the water would become clear again, I think it will when the Island trees grow and give more shade.

This is amazing. It is huge!! You must have a big garden to include a lake like this. I'd love to have real ducks in my garden. All I can manage at the moment is plastic ones.

Have you tried barley bundles in the water to clear it? I'm told it works well.

Do you have a stream running into this lake? I have ducks and would love to build them a large pond but I've been told `the pond must have a fresh water source if I am going to keep ducks on it as they are so dirty.

Found this because I've made a pond and am looking for inspiration. Mine is about 2ft across and 6" deep so not quite on the same scale! Had to look at yours because of your name, Harrypotter and my obsession. Yours is something to dream of; we all must have our dreams...

I'm in the same boat as you, Tuesdaybear - can only dream of a garden big enough for this stunning work of art. Mind you, not sure I'd have the strength to make anything remotely like this!

I was thinking of a s very small pond, wtih miniature or dwarf plants round it, to create a scalded-down vista. From a short distance it'd look like a full-size one a lot further away, at least that's my dream
