Hi all, I have just moved into a house that has a round pond in the garden. Approx 250 gallons. I want to make the pond shallower (Ideally no deeper than 1/2 foot) . What is the best way of doing this? Should I fill the pond with shingle?
I'm not sure what "shingle" is - can you explain?
Do you plan to keep fish? If so, you want to avoid any kind of substrate that is deeper than an inch or two as it can trap debris and cause a build up of toxic gas that can be dangerous to fish. This appears to be a fiberglass hot tub converted to pond... is that correct? Could you somehow create a platform that bridges the two seats and make an "artificial" bottom, allowing the deeper portion to still contain water but prevent anyone or anything from falling in? Just my first thought...
