Does anyone have experience in removing a garden pond?
I have a customer who was asking when I was doing other work there. They want the pond removed and have cut the liner to let the water out.
What else is involved in filling the hole besides the obvious (i.e. removing all vegetation, the pond liner, etc.)?
Nothing special is required. Remove the liner and any concrete that may also be there (a border, walkway, etc.). Also make sure any power lines and water lines are either removed or disconnected. If you are going to leave them, make sure the client is advised and id okay with it. The lining is the main thing as it limits drainage, even if it is punctured, so be sure to remove it. Then simply fill the area with proper fill (top soil, gravel, what ever is in that area) to match the desired finished result.
I removed a swimming pool and simple broke up the concrete ane left it, except for the top walking area. The balance was buried, with approval from the owner, and was covered with topsoil and then seeded with grass. Looks great.
Go for it, not a major issue.
