I have a really ugly pond in my garden that was created by the previous owner. I want to remove the pond and instead extend my patio so I can have a dining area where it is.
The pond is a concrete pond. What would be the best way to do this? My current ideas are: -Empty it of water, etc. Then fill with concrete so it’s level with the existing patio. Cover old and new patio with decking tiles so it’s all level and matches in. -Empty it of water etc. Smash up the pond. Fill with loose rubble and then do top soil, then get a patio/deck installed professionally.
I haven’t got a budget as such but I am by no means made of money! I’m leaning towards option 1 as it seems the easiest and most cost effective? With little outside help required. However open to any and all advice. Would really like the patio to match throughout tho, at present it’s a bit of brick, but of concrete and then this pond area.
