Pond and Butlers Sink Water Feature A week or so back, prior to all this toe numbing late snow, I decided on putting in a pond directly under the windows of my allotment hut. One of my favourite websites is freecycle, and I managed to get hold of a couple of butlers sinks and an old Victorian chimney pot. Below is the progress made on the day. It didnt take long to take shape, but I have to say, lifting and moving the sinks, on my own, was a bit of a gruelling task. The plan is to rig up a basic solar pump, which will pull water up a small length of hose, hidden behind the sinks, into the top one, with the water then making its way back through the open plug holes, with the lower sinker overhanging the pond. Ive removed the old picket fences, which Id initially put there to kind of section off the area, but having a long wooden deck spare, Ive now placed that adjacent to the pond, and Ive chosen to have tall upright posts with jute rope, with the plan to encourage climbers, creating a green wall to attract wild life. From the wet weather, the pond is nearly full, but due to my efforts focussed on setting up a new polytunnel, I havent had chance to take some new pictures, but I will be keeping this thread updated throughout the season.
