@FlyDragon that’s lovely! In my experience even a tiny pond adds so much to the garden.
I have a mini pond/bubbling water feature made with a pond liner. The hole was big but after adding all stones (I can't stand any bit of the liner or plastic visible) it got really tiny.This is just after making it in April last year.I then redid it to make it deeper, moved the bubbling stone to the back and added some plants.And this is the area this year. I haven't put the stone with the pump in yet.I am not sure it's worth having, I don't like the maintenance. It doesn't warm up and only needed topping up once or twice last year and once this year. It would be probably better to have a pondless water feature just for the sound but I made it like this to provide at least something for wildlife.
It looks lovely though, with those mature plants. Do you get much wildlife?
I just love the sound of water. I got a little solar fountain but took the fountain attachment off - it’s more of a soothing glug now. Really enjoying seeing everyone’s photos.Here’s mine - knocked up in the first week of lockdown from what I had in the garage and what I could source online. The water is crystal clear now and has been since it settled down. I’ve added a ‘landing platform’ of big stones - the birds seem to enjoy it. We’ve had loads of dragonflies too, which is wonderful.
