Pond Newst

Posted: Yesterday at 12:23


The pond is so clear I can nearly see the bottom at the 18 inch end 

We buy "stuff " and some of it "sort " of works or doesn't work at all and its very pleasing to find something that works

I can now see the newts or NEWST for the first time and for the first time in my life

There are lots of tiny black creatures shaped like a pin swimming about so all is good

You say play sand

? Do you mean place sand on the outer most shelf and then plant straight into the sand

? Will the sand just disperse over time and then leave the plants sitting on the liner

Im just seeking clarification please

I have an opportunity to create a new pond on my allotment in a 4 foot by 6 foot area

It will be 12 foot from a hedge and has bushes and grass nearby so i know it will support life

Buy a manufactured one or dig and fill with a liner etc

Assistance please friends

The concrete is about 6 foot away from a wild area that I dont tend at all and has ferns brambles and grasses next to a hedge

I hope the critters can cross this desert to get from the vegetation to the pond

Thanks for your input
