We're moving into a house in the summer that currently has a basic lined pond. If I'm right in understanding that it's only lined with a sort of plastic sheet thing it's just a case of slitting this and letting the water go through to the soil? Or will that damage the groundwork underneath?
Wildlife depend on garden ponds to survive, now that so many have been lost or polluted in rural areas. My pond is very small but it is an absolute joy, supporting damsel flies, newts, butterflies, frogs, hoverflies, and loads more.
