My pond has been in the garden for 3 years and the grasses i planted had got so overgrown and the fish had grown to. So i decided to make a new pond……

You cant see the pond as its hidden in the grasses………..

First i dug out the hole and laid the liner …………..

Then i filled it up with water to make sure it didnt leak.

The earth i dug up i put around the pond in a bank to make a rockery later on.

I used the stones round the old pond … and put round the pond edges to hold the liner in place……..

Then i left it for a week.. to settle in……. I cut back the grasses where the old pond used to be……..

Then yesterday i put the fish into their new home…… its raining today so they have plenty of rainwater in it…….

Now all ineed to do is get some pond plants and some plants to go round the pond….. it was hard work but i enjoyed doing it and the weather was lovely…. unlike today.

I know now you didn't do it all yourself! I have just spotted a little helper in your picture (third from the bottom). A bit of magic makes all the difference :)
