The intention was to start in the spring but got bored of looking at the proposed site so got the shovel outGetting on for twenty years since my last pond so things have changed somewhat; no more black boxes filled with gravelSpent long periods of time sat reading about all the revelations of how this pastime has developed and eventually came up with my plan.
Pond will be 21x8x6 (feet) with 2 BD’s and a skimmer all going to the filter shed; each line through a homemade easy and pumped into an anoxic filter 9x7x3 which gravity feeds back to pond.
Currently digging out trenches for the concrete collar/foundation/thingymajiggy; as the pond is on a slope this will be the level for the walls and then dig down to get 6 foot. Boxweld liner from there. This will be a SLOW build mainly so the wage packet can keep up with it but also going to do it all myself and I need lots of tea breaks
Now for the photo’s, first time used photobucket so it may all go wrong:
Pic one: What the garden first looked like when we moved in 3 years ago when first began thinking of having a pond again
Pic two: Taken from the roof when we did the chimney couple of months ago; garden ends where the tree line is
Pic three: From the roof again and arrow shows where the pond will be
