|Fine tuning the levels and depth of the pond, this pond has 3 different depths|
|I added a thick layer of sand to protect the liner, especially as this is stoney soil|
|Next lay in some underlay. This can be old carpet, carpet underlay |
or a ready made pond liner. We recycled some old office carpeting
|Yes it was freezing! Its Scotland in October, even if the weather has been unseasonably warm! |
Someone has to get the short straw to make sure all the creases are smoothed out as the pond fills
The border along the left side has had compost added and some plants planted. Two big pieces of stone have been put in place as stepping stones along the back of the pond to access the seating area. Once the rain stops we can finish burying the pond liner and borders to the right of the pond.
When the water has settled in a couple of weeks time, we'll introduce some aquatic plants and when it stops raining we'l get the rest of the native garden round the pond dug over and planted up and another area in the garden or mini garden will be finished.
