G'day  mates

Seems like we have a few talented Aussie pond mavens on the list. Fantastic.

Just visited Peter's pages <A HREF="http://www.krtf.mtx.net/page13.html">KRTF 
water pages</A>.  Lots of good ideas. Thanks Peter...lok forward to your 

I noticed though you were planting trees fairly close to the banks...is this 
primarily to stabilize the banks? or for shade, beauty etc.

I thought it was best to keep most of pond in sunlight, or dappled 
shade...and not have deciduous trees placed so that leaves do not accumulate 
at bottom of the pond?

Also if yo go with a 3:1 slope can you cut a shelf in at spots to set 
cerytain water plants in containers to get varying heights...will shelf hold?

Thanks. Best to all.   Frank
