Wood Pond Garden Decking
The L-shaped wooden decking by the pond has always been a restful place to sit. You can dangle your feet in the water, talk to a cat, throw tennis balls in the pond for the dog, or watch the colourful dragonflies skimming the water's surface. You might even see some little fishies!

In the early days the decking was unadorned, with a scary little ladder going down to the water from its corner. In the height of summer you could lower yourself slowly into the chilly water. Decking definitely made the pond more user friendly - it soon became a great destination for picnics.

The plantings near the decking are varied, but the tall olive green New Zealand flaxes which self-positioned themselves dominate. I love them - they give my pond a New Zealand home-grown flavour.
