    First selfbuild pond

    Always wanted a pond, and moving house, finally ive got the space for one. Start to finish i done it all myself. Its not the biggest of ponds, coming in at 3x2 and 1.1 deep. Im quiet happy with the results. Just waiting on the glass now. Cant wait to eventually get some fish in there. Sorry about this pics, im not sure how i rotate them

    Haha, I don't think anyone knows how to do that

    Good luck with your glass fitting, it was the most stressful time for me

    Blockwork and render look really neat. No chance I could achieve that kind of finish.

    The stonework looks good as well, nice one.
