Kezzab, that is much better than the first one (Yes, it's not my cup of tea, but it is much better)
It all went a bit mingin for a bit but i think a corner has been turned. Got lots of plants in now, pretty much just seeing what takes.
Parents brought over a carrier bag of hornwort from their pond. After buying a small quantity from a garden centre for an exorbitant fee, i reckon there was £100 worth in the bag at least!

I can have a go. I haven’t tended to post Hornwort, because if it’s held up I the post you just get green <“mush“>.Fancy selling some Darrel?

Hi darrel, it is Myriophyllum "red stem", which im guessing is the same. There's a banned version isnt there? But i dont think this is it. Could be wrong...

Yes and "yes & no", would be my guess. The main issue in the pond is that it is a rampant grower, the other problem is escape into the wild.Is it problematic in some way?
In terms of the aesthetics of the rock work around the pond it could be improved upon certainly but it doesnt bother me, but if you think it matters functionally thats different issue.
For sure you wont see a pond in nature that looks like this, but ive seen ponds done this way, or near enough, and they appear to host lots of wildlife.
The plan with the beach is to bound it with a ring of submerged stone to prevent slippage. Ive plenty of cut off liner so will double up, also along the edge as suggested.
Wood is something im not short of so that should be ok.
Good luck. Rocks were just house 'rubble' from renovation and some pilfered from my garden wall.Looking really good. I'm moving soon and getting a garden yay! And a pond is on my to do list. Where'd you get your rocks from, I've looked around garden centres and not seen anything suitable?
