    hi all,
    I’m in poor heath and have to get rid or reduce the size of my beloved pond.
    It’s 7m by 3m and full of fish including koi. Has anyone filled in a pond of this size and do you have any advice?
    we have considered buying an above ground pond to make a new home for some of the fish although the reviews I read suggest these are no good for koi as they are not deep enough.
    I was fit and healthy when we put this pond in 15 years ago but surgical complications have left me disabled.
    Just wondering if anyone has any advice or thoughts on th subject ?
    Thank you

    @Worrywart - sorry to hear that you are facing this decision. Yes, that above ground pre-formed ponds are popular, but as you said far too small for koi. You could have one with a few goldfish though, to keep your hand in the water, so to speak!

    @Big Lou did recently fill in a pond - here are a couple of the threads where he discusses the process:

    It would be pretty easy I would think to fill in the pond with sand planning on making a smaller pond purchase a new liner and extend your supply lines and drains.
