LF - I remember the pond from a previous thread but can't remember who built it. He was giving some assistance to someone else who was planning a pond, and was talking about the lovely paddlestones he'd used. It would be great to see an update this year as I'm sure he'll have put a lot more planting in an around it.
I'd hoped to put a small pond in here, but I may have just a container style one as I don't think I'll be here very long. I'll look forward to seeing yours LF. It's a great feature to have, whatever size it is
I can't take any real credit for the pond at my old house - it had been there for over twenty years. It was so badly neglected that it was in danger of needing total renovation, and a lot of money spent on it, if it had been left much longer, so most of our input was clearance. My entire garden front and back gardens here would have fitted into it!
