Autumn Garden Pond Project

Autumn can be a good time to build a pond. Some years the weather is quite sunny and pleasant, and the ground can be softer, making it easier to dig a hole. A pond in autumn can look very calm and relaxing as it reflects the golden colours of the season.

Many small ponds = A BIG pond

The preformed plastic ponds have been selling great this year, available in 3 sizes, the smallest (£30) being not much bigger than a Belfast sink, the medium (£48) the size of a small bath and the large (£78) the size of a fireside rug (All prices include delivery). However, with a calculator you can work out the approx surface they would make if all those sold this year were placed together. It's surprising just how big the area is, in fact its probably not far off being equivalent to this large wildlife pond above!

I know plenty of the customers were intending on creating a mini wetland in their garden, with native British aquatic plants, such as Marsh Marigold, so its great to think that a surface area of freshwater as big as that above has been created this year, just by customers of gardenis.co.uk. All will be providing habitats for insects, frogs, toads, and a place for garden birds to access water, across GB & Northern Ireland. And the great news is that every week the total surface area just keeps on growing. If the ponds keep selling as well as they have been, at this rate we'll eventually create a surface area as big as LAKE WINDERMERE! ;0)
