Pond Life

The main pond had become completely taken over and clogged up with water plants, fallen leaves and silt over the past few years so on the weekend I decided to clean it out and make it fit for habitation again.

One extra thing I’ve done as well is to line it with hessian sackcloth – the plastic I originally used to line the pond was bright white, it wasn’t a proper pond liner just some spare plastic sheet I had. The whiteness looks very unnatural and too unyielding for plants to take hold around the side, so the hessian sack should give plants some purchase, and hopefully look a bit more natural.
