Hi, i am wanting to construct a pond for the geese. i have thaught about the idea or digging a 10ft X 8ft hole (bowl shaped) lining with concrete and in the middle of the pond having a plug where you can let the water drain away and swill away the silt. The plug would lead into a large drainage hole filled with rocks and pebbles. Would this design work?

no . the force of water will create a cavern under the concrete making a void into which the pond will probably collapse into . make the bowl with a lip lower at one end like a ladle then do the drain bit with a 2ft wide by 2 ft deep channel filled with gravel to a suitable soak away point , when you need to flush it use a hose pipe to fill it to the overflow mark .a net made of shrimp netting will suffice to remove the muck :wink:  hope this helps  :wink:

I tried this a few year ago kizza, it was a full time job cleaning it out, it turns into a stinking mess in no time at all :wink:
