    Can you not feed a air stone behind him and the bubbles might ease him out? Or hose pipe with good flow of water?

    Yes I thought about back wash but didn't know if it could be shut off from pond bottom drain , could be difficult trying to reconnect with few ton of water behind it

    Yes this was going to be the last resort, every now and then he musters enough strength to swim out the drum so might check a few more times before resorting to that

    Cheeky buggers - I can walk down the middle of mine now as long as I can keep my balance on the 2 or 3 sets of ladders that are now in the gap.

    I can go one better than that Andi, I can use feet, inches and mm all at the same time to get the easiest to read most accurate measurement lol

    I used to work with a guy that didn't understand halves, quarters, eighths etc. and would give us measurements like 4 ft 3 inches and a half and a half and a half which translated to 4 ft 3 inches and something like 3 16ths LOL But then again he read Horatio Nelson as Haraty O'Nelson - must have been that famous Irish Sailor LOL

    Whatís the deal with building a pergola over the pond? If it stands over 2m high I presume you need some sort of planning permission?

    is a reasonable guide

    Just use your common sense mate...my neighbors pokes up around 18" above our back fence, The actual timber doesn't bother me but the silver foil he has flapping in the wind to scare pigeons away seriously gets on my man boobs as I see it flickering away out of the corner of my eye all the bloody time. It doesn't work either. I might have accidentally helped the wind blow it off from time to time
    That doesn't cheese me off as much as their flaming dog which makes our yappy mutt sound positively mute by comparison!! As they're a bit dim (but nice enough) it's pointless me telling them so I'll have to shoot it lol (I'm joking for all the snowflakes reading this)
    Ours pergola pokes up above the fence to one side however, that garden is 1' lower than ours which probably makes things look even worse. I had a chat, told them what I was planning on doing, they were fine about it. I'll eventually grow something up the side I suspect.
    If in doubt, call the planning office and they'll advise.

    I knew it was something like 2.1m to 2.4m within 2m of your property boundary as my shed was fractionally over that and when I spoke to the council about it they said as it was such small amounts involved even if the neighbour complained they wouldn't bother even coming out to look at it.

    Good luck with the build Skoosh and I'm sure Mr Big can recommend his builder to you as long as you don't want it as a permanent structure




    Run away !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cheers Gary, Iíll have a look at that tonight. Iíve got a couple of yappy things next door as well, looked out the back and one was running around my garden as it had dug under the fence. I have it a helping had back under the fence with the sole of my shoe!. Yea just trying to figure out whether it is worth putting a roof on at that height as the patio is a couple of feet below the grass so when on grass level the roof will be eye line. Same with the neighbours they are a foot or so below us, older couple that probably wouldnít mind that much but they can be a funny bunch
