 Good morning 

 

i have a old pond (see pictures) that i was planing to put in the ground and grow some plants in. This can not be done  due to wast and water pipes under the ground so i am now thinking of making it a raised bed (open to opinions). 

i am planning to use this due to the soil condition we have in our front garden. 

obviously if i do use this as a raised bed its going to look ugly? i was wondering if there is any thing i could grow around the old pond to hide it and make it look better?

someone mentioned growing box or ivy? open to opinions 

 

thanks for reading

i hope it makes sense

Trees too close to the house

would like to plant a magnolia, cherry, pair, and plumb trees in the garden.
