Anne Wareham creates a beautiful reflecting pool
What a lovely surprise to read Anne’s amusing post about her trials and tribulations in creating a beautiful reflecting pool and her relief at discovering Pond Black.
Grab a coffee and read Anne’s reflections on creating a reflecting pool.
Generally people might consider that first. So for a long time I was in difficulties with my new unreflecting pool. You might think that a black liner might be quite enough to give a reflection, but it’s not – light picks up all the folds in the liner and shows all the random bits of debris which have found their way in.
I tried a variety of things, including errr…umm.. wood stain, which at the time was mostly only available in imitation wood colours (why do people want to stain wood in imitation wood colours?) so even getting black stain was a pain. Then, at last I came across a truly black reflecting pool, managed to contact the garden designer and found the Source of Black Pool Dye!
I have never looked back. Dyofix is the answer. I am totally happy to recommend it to anyone wanting to forget about their pond’s imitation of great grey-
Sincere thanks to Anne Wareham
Although we do often receive nice comments about our pond dyes they don’t come in the amusing and eloquent manner in which Anne has written about her reflecting pool saga. Anne has made a fabulous job of creating the pool and we recommend people visit Veddw House Garden in Monmouthshire, Wales.
