just had a visit from the landlord regarding my pond. i spoke with the guy when he came to collect the rent last month and everything was fine, but he's gone away and spoke to someone who knows a thing or two about letting and selling property and he advises against it. apparently the house would be harder to sell with a pond in the garden :-? i'll be filling it back in over the weekend and re-thinking my plans. . . . . feel like moving!!!
