    That looks fantastic, Justin! image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Brilliant Justin. You've worked really hard on that. Hope you get time to enjoy it.

    That's looking great - stand well back - it'll soon be colonised with all sorts of mini-beasts - ours is teeming with life image

    Is it too late to get frogspawn for the pond? I've made a pond on the plot by sinking an old fibre glass bath into the soil and putting in half a dozen aquatic plants., min'e I'm worried the sides are too steep for frogs.

    Your pond looks great Justin. Mine looks a bit oblong.

    Bruce - a bath will be much too steep sided for frogs - it will also be a death-trap to hedgehogs and other small mammals.  You need to find a way of making a shallow sloping 'beach' at one end.

    Your pond looks great, Justin.  Would like to make a pond in my garden for my frog friends but can just imaging our batty dog thinking its for her to paddle in.  Probs have to leave that project for a few years.

    It looks lovely, stunning image.  Lot of hard work gone into it I should imagine.

    Dovefromabove - I never thought about that. I think I'll drain it and remove the old bath and liner , then maybe dig it out more or fill it in.
