    Thanks for the link Woo :). Bradshaws are very competitive with their prices :blue thumb:. My problem is I'm impatient :rolleyespink: :roflol: and having started it I just want to get it finished and move on to next job. Hence my question regarding the tarp, which I do have. I suppose a tarp is more likely to rip.

    We're Making a Wildlife Pond

    I'm going to stick to mostly native plants or those specifically recommended for wildlife ponds. The various Wildlife Trusts and RSPB have good lists and I'll probably concentrate on them.

    I can confirm that this works well, the colour of the grey product is natural. It stops you seeing the bottom of the pond with its unsightly leaves and it reduces algae growth dramatically.

    Ideas to buck up my tired pond please

    Yes you are so right Armandii, get it slightly off balance and it'll be a right pain. Give me a rubber type pond liner any day.
