Creating a Wildlife Pond
I've decided to build a pond in my garden. I've had one before but it was basically a home for koi carp, although I have to say it did attract an awful lot of wildlife. This time I'm creating it with wildlife in mind.
I have chosen a spot that is at the top of the garden in an area that is quiet and close to a part of the garden that contains a log pile and is left slightly overgrown with ivy, hidden toad houses built of house bricks and lots of ground cover plants.
This is the progress for day one. If I survive and can walk tomorrow I might do a bit more.
Moved quite a few plants, think the acer will look good next to pond
The size will be roughly 2.5 metres long by 1.5 metres wide
The deepest part will be approx 2ft deep
