Another silly question coming up . I bit the bullet and bought myself some pond liner and hopefully will start construction on my pond this weekend.
I don't have a water butt yet because there's nowhere to put one until I get my shed in a week or so, then I'm going to attach it to that.
In the meantime I was wondering, could I fill the pond with water from the tap so it looks nice for now and then let it over the year gradually get diluted with rain water, or will that not work? Or will I have to wait and let it fill up naturally?
Also the position is going to be in full(ish) sun. I've read on other threads that the water will turn green. Is this good for the wildlife and do people just not like it because of how it looks? I'm going to grow the grass long around it to give it some shade.
