Pond problem

Posted: 11/05/2014 at 17:58

Last year we paid for someone to put top soil at the back of our pond & planted some alpine plants with large rocks surrounding our small water fall.

This year however, our pond edging is completely riddled with weeds, which makes me wonder if a membrane was used before placing the top soil.  I called the gentleman who undertook the work who assured me that a membrane was used and that the weeds were probably due to birds etc.

I am at a loss what to do, so any help is much appreciated.

Is it safe for animals please?

Last year for the first time I noticed that newly planted flower heads were disappearing.  It was almost as though we had been visited by a pair of scissors since only the stalks were left.

Having made a few enquiries, it would seem that the culprits could very well be slugs, so my question is, what can I do to stop them decimating my flowers again this year. I have a dog and three cats, so must be mindful of their welfare in finding a solution.
