    Welcome! I was trying to figure out the scale there, from the picture. That tree is big, too! What kind of tree is it?

    It's a greensleeves Apple tree :) the missus has planted it there temporarily while I clear a space in the front garden!
    The plan eventually is to expand the pool and rebuild the waterfall area , just waiting permission off the wife to rip up the paving stones and dig away :)

    @bagsmom Ah you meant the stump!!!! It's the remains of the oak that died, the roots cleared etc...that will be removed when the rebuild starts , it will just take a brute force approach to lift it , sorry about the mix up haha

    Let's just say I learned the hard way my first fall.

    My pond looks like a fry cook at Wendy's in the fall...
    All netted up! :ROFLMAO:;)
    But then spring comes and I forgive the trees and let them hang out...

    Thank you! I've had it for 2 years now I think and all the wonderful people on this site helped me build it.
    Can't wait to see you're rebuild!
