I am going to put in a pond this winter and wonder if anyone has any thoughts. I plan to make it around 10x5ft and fit it between a raised bed and a large wooden swingset that I have made (no chance of kids swinging off towards it due to the framework!). I have options to put it elsewhere if this really wouldn't work, or if I need to make it bigger, but I have no idea and have never done this before. The location is south facing and gets barely any leaf fall. There's a privet hedge along the north side of it. The ground slopes slightly down towards the south. My plan is to make the higher side, north, the deep end and get it down to 75cm or so, and the south end will be above ground level so I'll build up the ground into a little bank to support it. Any thoughts on this, for size and any practical considerations I've not thought of please? I'd really appreciate it thanks.
