30.6.14: My summer vacation project will be a pond in the garden. After much consideration about flexible pond liners I decided to use a rigid pond liner for long-term trouble-free installation. Although it looks a bit black and plasticky, the edges will be fully planted with wetland plants and the edge will become green.
The point of this is to become a supporter of wildlife, and a pond will support frogs and birds mostly. Don't mention the mosquitoes!
