Building a wildlife pond, with stone edging.

The owners of this property wanted a large pond to replace an old smaller pond.

This 15 meter long pond replaced an existing smaller pond. Indian sandstone edging gives a nice balance between formal and informal.

The new pond measures 15 metres by 6 metres and is the focal point of the garden.

Aquatic planting helps reduce the chances of green water and string algae developing.
