Dig a great big hole, over 70cm deep so things will survive the winter, leave shallow bits around some edges for plants and creatures to hang out in.
Find some smelly carpet and cardboard from the street for lining and wack on top a huge sheet of butyl bought from Aquatics Warehouse.
Add soil and then fill with tap water. Add some pond water from a friends pond. Be patient and trust mother nature will do the rest:
You will also notice the lovely new stepping stone path which was made from marrying my sledgehammer with the previous concrete monstrousity, the bath tub in it’s new home and the beds which I have marked out using the boughs of some elder which have been recently felled to clear the canopy.
