This Winter's major project is a new pontoon. Its partly a decorative feature but mainly a way that Sally can reach out to dip her watering can without falling in the pond!!
We got a local contractor in to do it and he started by putting concrete posts in last autumn while water levels were lower. Then wood cross members were bolted to the posts and decking placed on top. He built a bench out of spare wood from the deck and we got some rope to add to the feature.
