'Splash out on a pond' article by Nigel Colborn in Daily Mail:
A water feature looks fabulous and attracts lots of wildlife, too
- This is the perfect weekend for making a pond
- Ponds take time to mature and balance themselves
- Build now and it can stabilise itself throughout spring and summer
This is an excellent weekend for making a pond. It may be freezing outside and playing with cold water might seem like a horrible idea, but there are sound reasons for taking on such a masochistic task.
Like good wine, a pond needs time to mature and balance itself. This is a slow process and only happens during spring and summer. Build now and stabilisation can begin right away. Your pond will be much improved by autumn and nigh on perfect a year later.
