There’s a hole in my garden…

Pool digging, end day 1

After a few days hiatus in which life, and the sordid business of earning a living intervened, we’re back on the garden pool project, and we’ve been digging today.   We’re using as large a digger as we could get through the Lych Gate (the only entrance to the garden) but it’s dawning on us now that this really is quite a big pond.   Even with some really very nice mechanical assistance (Caterpillar model 301.6C for the digger geeks amongst you) it’s going to take a few days.

Our biggest worry now is that the spoil produced isn’t actually going to be enough to contour all the surrounding borders in the way we’d planned, and we might have to buy some extra topsoil…
