Pond Project

PostPond Project by Shanks

This is the reason i haven't been around much im been working on this.

A few people wanted to see how i got on with it a while back when i was designing it and as promised here is a post with some of the pictures of it.

The Entire island bed is 14ft wide and 18ft long with most of it being pond. The pond itself is 14ft wide and 12ft long with the deepest section being 3ft deep. the rest is a raised boarder to enable the waterfall to be possible without looking like an after thought. only half the soil dug out was used to create that boarder the rest was used to fill in the old pond.

The dry stone wall is made from Rustic Slate there was around 90 pieces (comes in a ton crate) its not the best stuff to build a dry stone wall out of although for never building one i reckon its not too shabby seems to do the trick and ism strong enough to walk on while holding back all the soil.

The total project cost around £1300 and took me 8 days to complete form start to finish.

PostRe: Pond Project by Shanks

it should be fully set up and running by Mid April just got to sort shit out with the bank etc (as well as fix my van :( )

But thanks its probably the first big project i have had free roam on as the other work i have done has been much smaller scale or very restricted. i do have a Facebook page with all the current work i'm doing or have done under the name.

http://www.facebook.com/DeadGoodGardens

i try and it updated as often as i can, use it more like a blog and some where i can reference my previous work from.
