    So after day 2 here we are. Wood is roughly where the pond will be. Also if you look in the back doors you can see the big dog. LolFD34A5E9-647D-4876-B4AA-B1FFBBAA233F.jpg8C0BB67F-B069-47B7-8FB3-A10FE06F6B2D.jpg

    Knew if I hung around long enough there’d be some dog action!

    Great to see a digger poised and ready to go, good luck - exciting times!

    Normally you'd have to wait for it to get dark

    So had a couple of machinery issues but back up and running today. Pond will be getting cracked on with tomorrow.

    Thats the width of the pond so about 3m. Think itíll be about 7/8m long. All good so far.

    Nice work Wayne. I'm assuming you are going to put the fences back up again after the pond is finished or you'll have every little scrote walking past chucking rocks or rubbish in it. When we had a pond in our front garden which was visible but behind a hedge if that makes sense all sorts of stuff used to get chucked in there!!!

    There’s a 2m high wall/fence being built before all the filters and everything else is in place. It’ll all be blocked from. New from the path. Don’t you ant some toe rag nicking things either.

    Nice one, you probably mentioned that in your earlier posts but I missed it if you did. Should have gone to Specsavers LOL

    Hope you have got a decent lock for that digger or that'll be gone!!! Well it would if you lived round my way!!!

    Someone came snooping yesterday during the day asking about the old metal fence but I’ve given it to the guy who’s doing it as he reckons it weighs about a ton and a half. House is surrounded by CCTV anyway.

    It's not the ones you see coming round that you need to worry about too much it's the ones you don't see.

    CCTV is good but not 100% all the time,

    Anyway that's enough of the being safe when it comes to potential unwanted visitors. As they say what key opens your front door, back door, garage door and car door? A Pikey.

    Good luck with the build and keep the photos coming. You've already made more progress on your pond in a couple of days than I have on my QT in a few months LOL

    Looking very good Wayne wont take long with that bad boy of a digger.

    Going to be a nice size and 3mtrs across is enough as you have to think about catching them.Starting at a good time as well ready for spring

    So that's where I am going wrong John, wish you'd have told me that earlier as if I could have used a digger in my garage my QT would have been finished and fully matured by now LOL

    Nice one mate. Looking good.
    How much space you putting between wall or fence.

    Also where is the pump filter house going.
    Keep the photos rolling in.

    That's the advantage of a pond that's square or rectangular, you have a easier job trapping them in the corners unlike my round pond. It's almost a two handed or two netted job at times

    At least with a digger you don't have to struggle too much when the ground's frozen unlike using a spade and fork etc. It's like digging through solid rock at times

    Theres going to be 1m between walls and outside of the blocks but it’ll have a bridge over for everyday access to the garage. Filter is going in a pit which will be between the pond and the house and then covered by decking.
