Pond life - inspector's report

The Expert called round to inspect the pond. It scored full marks for water clarity and a bonus point for the landscaping of the terraces. But marks were deducted for leaves - far too many. Not the leaves in the swimming zone which the robot can pick up, but the millions that fell in amongst the underwater plants and rocks. Also I still had not cut back the plants around the edge - tut. So I have had a major pruning spree and then spent hours on my knees fishing leaves out from between the rocks - not too bad as the water temperature has risen to 10deg.
