Well, I've dug up my concrete, and now need to dig the hole. I've had a look at previous pond building discussions re shallow areas and sloping sides, but I can't see that anyone has mentioned the appropriate depth at maximum? Assorted websites seem to produce conflicting opinions. The pond is going to be about 12 x 12 foot (not in a square shape though), be lined with butyl and have no filtration/aeration except for aerating plants. There will not be fish and there will be an additional bog area. Half will be in sunlight, the other half in shade and I plan a series of shelves at different depths for different indigenous plants. How deep should the deepest bit be though? All advice and experience very greatly welcomed, and I would love to see pictures of other people's projects too.
What depth should I aim for?Jump to latest post
