This is the job in progress - as you'll see we've got more space than some people, but we have to leave room on the lawn for lying on our backs gazing up through the branches of the ash trees and being swooped over by the bats (we have an SSSI bat cave just 100m from our front door)
The pond is 2.60m x 1.70m approx.
The area between the pond and the Shady Bank (supported by sleepers) is going to be planted to provide cover for the hedgehogs so we can use some of the topsoil there, and there are some other places we can put it, but we might have to get a mini skip at some stage.
It's not the perfect place for a pond, as it's under the tree, but we'll net it for the short period when it drops its leaves.
You can see one of the hedgehog houses and the hedgehog gate into the next garden. There's going to be a log pile behind the ferns near the garden seat eventually.
