    Looks like a 2 yard skip mate. Is it for your weekly kitchen waste?

    I used 4 6 yard skips to dig my 5000 gallon pond. Found out after it would have been far cheaper to have ordered a grab lorry to take the muck away

    that thought did cross my mind when i ordered it....

    but no, i've been waiting for the weather to warm up to do a little digging for a header pond.
    the koi ripped to shreds the lily the missus bought last year.

    so i got a 50 gallon round tank to use as a header pond, and it's been sat in that all winter.
    just need to dig a hole out for it and run a trickle of water through it.
