Creating a level lawn rim of green oak planking. Note the ugly inflow pipe in the top right hand corner of the picture.
Green oak lawn rim installed and a brick headwall built to "house" the inflow pipe.
During the restoration works we built this 7.0 metre long green oak jetty.
The pond was leaking at the outflow control, so having repaired the leak, we built the water level control structure (at the back of the pond in this image).
The finished restoration. Still waiting for rainfall to flush the pond!
