The Pond

New plants around the pond

Yesterday, except for the wind, the weather was quite nice. We took the opportunity to do a bit of work around the pond.
First off, a whole trailer load of sandy loam went into the space between the fence and the pond. There is a row of stones along the wire fence that will help hold the dirt in place.
The best part of the job was rearranging the rocks along one side so that the black plastic won’t show. We had to also rebuild the wall behind the plastic to make this happen. It took all day to do this short section, and to plant the grasses into the stone wall. The overflow of the pond is just there too, so we also planted some swamp plants that should really thrive.
