Nice one, Pond Digger. Another lovely job. The transformation from the seeming chaos of photo 1 to the naturalism of number 8 is amazing.
Be good to see it again in six months, with a season's growth.

A lovely job, Ponddigger. I like the way the stone used is similar to that which has been used in the house. The detailing is very good, too and in a season or so it will look absolutely natural. Well done.

Hi ponddigger, both very impressive jobs, well done.

I've built a few ponds both natural and formal and been happy with the results. But I've never been that happy with the streams/waterfalls. They have been OK and have worked alright, but they always look a bit 'fake'.

I noticed you used slabs for the waterfall. Are they concreted in or do you then cover them with liner? I'd also like to know same as Greengage, what size pump you used to create that flow of water?
