    I love your pond! snjumpingwithhearts.gif
    I'm about to start building my second pond, it will be about 18" above ground and 4.5' deep. I wish I could keep it uncovered, but I share my garden with too many predators
    Your pond looks lovely, I hope you'll keep adding to this showcase as time goes by and plants grow larger!
    You've done a great job! smclap.gif
    Ps. Are you a member of the Garden Pond Forum?

    Thank you. We love it. It’s the centre piece of our huge garden . Which is gradually taking shape .
    I’m not a member if the pond forum . I will take a look.

    We have a visiting heron , who is magnificent and the fish seem to hide in the deep bit under the weed. Some losses but worth it to see the heron.

    We made a decision to not cover it and let nature work out it’s balance.

    The builder is my husband! It’s not his trade but he can turn his hand to most things. I say what I want and he comes up with the plans. I then do everything to do with planting.

    You lucky thing and a willing model he is too. He's a real asset.

    I wonder where you're based, if you don't mind telling that is!

    Looks really good! Much bigger than I could currently undertake due to space issues but awesome nonetheless.

    I'd love to try something like this myself some day.

    We garden on over an acre of land so everything we do has to be on a big scale. Only moved in three years ago and it was pretty much a field!

    Once the digging part is over the rest is not so bad, so start smdigging.gif and if you can't go too wide, go a bit deeper that way you still have decent water volume

    Welcome to the forum!:)
