You'll know what I'll say.

'Wildlife' ponds get full of muck and murk and are often not much different from the surrounding vegetation,being so full of plants and pond weed.

A reflecting pool though (and a small one works too) is a joy forever - bringing the sky into your garden, full of light and the gentle movement of clouds.

It need only be a few inches deep, unlike a wildlife pond, so no major excavations. Just needs to be absolutely flat and blacked up with an organic black dye.

See http://veddw.com/south-garden-pool-hedges/. What's not to like?


Ha, ha! Yes, well, of course, yours does look rather gorgeous. I shall fasten on the "absolutely flat" bit, which sounds like one of those elements that would take me days to get right, if I ever did. Totally agree about reflections, and muck and murk, though I fear a small pool of black ink in my garden would look rather like a lost full stop. There's a lot to think about.
