    I have no clue, I have a pair of peafowl and the grass grows to my knees, they surely make it last.
    Just buy the pond liner then he will have to agree [​IMG]

    It is awfully tempting to do something similar to our backyard to allow free ranging.. [​IMG]

    lucky ducks! And chickens - what a great lot of space for them. I think a pond sounds great too.
