I've had a pond project under way for a while
The main pond is now nearing completion (it's even got water in it now!) So here's a photo - not very good as it was so sunny!!
It's on a slope that was so uneven we couldn't use it and it was too lumpy to mow
Now there is a place to sit alongside the pond - and by the paved bit the pond wall is just the right height to sit on. Then there are steps and a path leading round to the far side where the water will be above waist level - perfect for looking in to at close quarters :)
The facing for the blocks used for the wall is 80% sand form a seam of sand running through our land (the rest of course is heavy clay LOL) This has given it a lovely natural finish that blends in with the surroundings.
I've been planting up water lilies today - and have a couple of lotus too. There is a hole near the veggie patch that is now lined but I have to work on before filling it. I also reused an small preformed shape to make a pond in a meadow area, That's ready to fill, but unfortunately nearly filling the main pond has run the well dry - so now I have to wait for rain before I can fill any more
None forecast in the next week :(
Though that's nice for the people here on holiday...
I'm hoping you'll post the lovely photo of your pond project here too please Potagere?
