Garden Koi Pond Renovation Timelapse
Pond 5 years ago 1,346,314 views
The old PVC liner had needed replacing for some time and we had patched up holes round the edge for years, but a new leak at the bottom meant we had to renovate the pond. We opted for a Firestone EPDM liner, a skimmer with dedicated pump and a new 'beach' area at the shallow end made from cobbles to give fry and newts a better chance of surviving. The edge of the pond was leveled as the ground had shifted over the years. The waterfall was sealed with cement and adjacent rocks rearranged. The plants flourished in no time and have overgrown somewhat. We placed spawning brushes near the shallow end and within a month we noticed fry swimming in the cobbles. Since we have added new fish, we decided to put up an electric fence to help protect against the Heron and other wildlife.
