I want to put a path between the pond edge and the edge of the border you can see in this picture. The edge of the border will be somewhere around where the daffs are right now. This should ensure the pathway is wide enough and comfortable to use.
I intend it to be a stepping stone path finished with stones and pebbles in between in the hope that the transition between the pond edge and border looks natural. Here's the same area from the opposite angle
My question is: currently the excess pond liner covers most of that area but I am unsure if I should trim it away and put down weed suppressing membrane before I start the path or will the excess pond liner do the job.
Idealy once the path and gravel are down I'd like to soften it a wee bit with some planting, nothing major just a couple of bit of greenery here and there. If the pond liner is acceptable to use can I just snip out a wee planting hole to put the plants in? As I would do if it were weed suppressing material. Obviously it would not be too near the edge of the pond so the first foot or so of liner nearest the pond would remain intact. Thanks in advance and apologies if this post is in the wrong thread. I wasn't sure quite which one to put it in.
