Wildlife Pond

Posted: 10/08/2015 at 21:49

Ok. I would empty as much water as possible into large containers by syphon. Place plants to be split, saved etc into buckets of the  water. Dig out preformed shape - old pond and move to one side (with lots of help!) Then return water to pond to a depth to keep your plants happy - if you want...

Then start digging - go as big as you can. Ponds appear to shrink in size once you put in the water and the plants!!

Look forward to seeing th pics

Fencing alternatives - Ivy?

Cutting down your hedge is only the will have to get the roots ground or dig them out. Then you will have to replenish the soil digging in lots of organic matter. I would be inclined to purchase some  hurdles to bridge the gap, keep the dog in and give you and your neighbours some privacy while your new plants grow.
