Suddenly I remembered I had an old clam shell wading pool out the back that I got for my ducks but they don't use it.
I bought it around into the front garden. I am in the process of digging out all my current plants and replacing them with natives so the front was a mess. I found a siutable spot and dug it in.
It looked like crap! I couldn't handle seeing all that blue, it stood out like balls on a dog. Hmmm, I have some black plastic!
I tucked it in all the way around to stop chooks digging it up and held it there with bricks.
The picture above shows the bricks covered with soil. Still looked a little stark so I decided to try and make it look like a natural rock pool. I surrounded it with rocks, trying to make them seem natural but not succeeding very well! So I tried planting native strappy leafed things (I don't know thier correct name!) Randomly around the edge and popped a few bits of fallen timber around. Then I potted up some flat leaved sedge and put that in around the edges of the pool.
