New Pond, Part 2


Hello Friends Here is Part 2 of the New Pond

Well, the New Pond is finished all but for some tidying up and some titivating to do Finished, I’m Thrilled with it, so nice to sit and listen to the waterfall, I did it with a preformed one and added rocks and stones round it, it’s not perfect as there are gaps near the side but I will think of someway of getting round it by adding some trailing plants may be, any suggestions anyone would be helpful, did think maybe have some rocks cut to shape that would hang over the side but that could be expensive.

Anyway Picture Of before first and how it all ended up.

Mmmm! After all the Tidying and Titivating I’ll be digging up a plant bed and laying it to lawn, Ha! Ha! Never Ending work a Garden LOL

Thats a great way of doing a pond, I really like that you can perch on it.

It looks smashing Jackie, I also like the way you have built it up and can sit on the edge, my son couldnt get down when he was digging out for his pond due to hard rock so his was built up to fill in around the pond, he used decking and has an area to sit upon, also rocks and pebbles with planting area`s a waterfall and was also able to diguise the filter and pump, its been in a few years now and still looks as good, there is nothing quite as relaxing after a hard days graft than listening to the tinkle of the water, I find it very therapeutic myself.
I`ve been playing catchup on what is yet another miserable wet day and enjoyed looking at all the changes you have made in your garden...
