My scale babies new home got the last finishing touches today. Yay!
The pond was finished a little while ago, but it had been planned since last summer. It’s a half-raised pond (majority is below the ground), as it was less work.
We had all the wood for the supporting frame, the new liner was paid for by a bingo win, and the cement needed was paid for from a different bingo win, so all in all it ended up free. 😀
We had loads of broken slabs, and quite a few bricks, so those got used for the wall. The little “pier” was made using off cuts of planks we had laying about. It’s there as my “pump cleaning station”. Half of it folds over on itself, so I can lift the net and remove the pump for cleaning.
Of course two of my beautiful girlies cam to
cause havock help showing off the finished pond:
