Still Day 5
Well that was a good mornings work. Here are the photos.
This is the liner we used. We ordered 5x4. They sent 5x5 so we have quite a bit left over.
What a mess liner is huge
Took lots of fiddling about
Finally started to put the water in. Kept pulling the lines to reduce creases
Placed the stones
Trimmed excess liner and underlay and added the chippings and barley straw
Have to wait now for about a week before the plants can go in. Have run the liner and underlay under the soil at the back of the pond so it should be nice and boggy for plants. Still need to get some small rocks to put in the pond on the ledge at the back to help critters climb out and keep the chippings in place.
Pleased with it so far but it's been hard work.
I'll post a breakdown on the costs later so people can see how much it cost to create this size of pond.
I'll also post piccies of how it settles and how the plants go in etc.
