1st built water feature

1st built water feature

This was my first idea for a water feature which was built like a broken down well (ruin) the "well" was made to overflow into the stream into a small pond the other end and then pumped back to the well.
Due to too many leaves falling in the well and rotting/smelling bad I filled it in a year later and built the waterfall in its place

Hi Cristina,
I dismantled it and re-used the pond liner and rocks to make the waterfall in the same place.I still wanted a water feature there so filling with flowers wasn't really an option at the time.
I will be dismantling the waterfall soon and do away with the stream.I will build another smaller waterfall close to the pond.The garden is going to have a complete re-design.I will have plenty of rocks and cobbles left to do other things with like build a better rockery and so on.Watch this space as work progresses....lots more photos etc. Think I'd best start a blog. : )
