I've just bought my first home and it has a rather deep pond, I like it and would love to keep it...but I've never even had a garden till now so I'm coming at this like a newbie, not knowing how to develop and look after a pond
I really don't like all of the slate surrounding the pond, at least not taking up as much space as it does. I'd ike to make the pond more natural, but controllable.
I would like grass, flower beds, foliage or something else more natural than that slate taking up so much space.
But i have no idea how or if possible.
Under the slate there appears to be a liner. I can't tell if it's the pond liner or just to stop weeds growing up.
Being new to this what is even possible and how?
I really need a point in the right direction.
