So, after 3 attempts my very small pond is finished. There are no plants in it or around it yet, so I'd be really grateful for tips about what plants to buy or request from other gardeners.
Also need advice on what things to put around it to act as shelter for wildlife - large stones, logs etc.
Lastly, any suggestions on how to create a cat-free zone around the pond? I don't want to create a haven for frogs etc only for my cat to eat them. My only idea so far is to stick bamboo canes in the area around the pond to make it more difficult for cats to get near it. There isn't really room for a fence, and cats are good at climbing fences in any case
