Ponds & Metal Grids

Posted: 21/09/2017 at 15:16

There will be 4 - 6 inch gaps between the bars so frogs and newts can enter and exit

Its only the interaction of galvanised steel to water and wild life 

I have covered all other challenges

The black smith has suggested that if I go for the galvanised to leave it in the garden for about a month to "weather" and then place it in the water

Its £255 for galvanised and £380 for stainless

A blacksmith has asked if I want stainless steel or galvanised steel

Why do you need to level the area ?

You can set aside an area at the periphery  to sow wild flowers to attract bees and butterflies who will pollinate YOUR flowers and vegetables

Make a small raised area that can be different to the rest of the garden

Good luck
