Essex, United Kingdom
My daughter has moved home where there are two ponds which are lined with a swimming pool type plastic. They were not previously used for fish but for water plants. As she has two young children I emptied the water and plants in the ponds and filled them up with top soil. However, I hadn't filled it to the top and when it rains the ponds refill! Should the ponds have been drilled with holes before putting in the top soil, to let the water drain through? Or, does anyone have any other ideas without drilling? Thanks.
