This pond was started in October last year and and has only just been finished, there were a few small set back along the way but it wouldnt be as much fun if every thing went smoothly /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Crappy builders to start off with, I wanted the hole around 30" deep they hit clay at 30cm and wouldnt dig anymore so I told them where to go /angry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":angry:" border="0" alt="angry.gif" />

The weather (when isnt it setback /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> )

I fitted 4 liners all of which leaked before stumping up more cash for a butyl liner /angry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":angry:" border="0" alt="angry.gif" />

Fencing and boarding took way longer than it should have because of ill health and weather etc.

Its hard to say a definite price because it wasnt only the pond that was done, the whole garden was refenced and separate foundations went in for the shed before it was lined out etc and then all the decking etc but for the whole job it will have been somewhere near £5000 (the wife will probably slap me now and tell me it was way more /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> )
