Snake in garden pond.

Barry,

It was probably a grass snake and it seems that its favourite food is frogs.
They do eat fish, but unlike some other animals, it is unlikely that it will

Filter clogging

That depends.
If the pump is an impellor, then probably not. If however the pump works any
other way, then it probably will.

I don't feel that emptying the pond was a good plan because even as small...

Ususally, the pressure of the water will hold the liner in place.

Firstly check inside the hole/vessel to ensure there are no spiky bits that
are likely to be able to poke through the liner. If in...

It's probably best to line - I would. It's apparently not good practice to
have fish and wood in the same pond (however small), same goes for metals.

Make sure if there are fish in there that it is...

using tiles instead of a pond liner

I'm not sure you'd want to.

If you leave a swimming pool, the algae builds up, forming a green cast to

You could spend a lot of time digging over, but then you would also need to
reseed the lawn anyway and might not completely clear the...

Invasive water weed

I too have sworn quite a bit and very colourfully too, often making up new

New site for ponds and garden

We had a stream originally, but we got rid of it as it became dirtied really
