2005-Sep-25 - Our Place - More work on the duck pond
Tried to entice the geese out through their new portal in to the pond but they took a sharp right hand turn and headed off to greener pastures to sample all the succulent wild grasses
So no geese swimming in the pond today - I guess they'll discover it eventually - maybe we have mentally retarded geese ?
After we used up all our old jarrah sleepers - I remembered that I brought 6 spare ones back from the Wooroloo well restoration project.
Quite a job loading and moving these as they were very big and heavy - we decided that we needed to cut them in half before we would have any sort of chance of moving them around.
I'm so glad I have a chainsaw - it made very quick work of cutting up the sleepers.
Ended up using all these with quite a lot of wall still exposed - I decided that it would take a very long time to round up enough rocks to cover this - so opted to buy another 8 sleepers from the local landscaping suppliers - made pretty good progress after this.
Still need to do the actual job of placing the rocks on top of the pond walls - a job for another day.
