Good morning folks.
I decided in a moment of weakness to have a 'wild life' pond. On the old site I detailed how I managed to get to this state. Well all was well until a friendly mole decide to make his/her run under the pond liner and pushing the liner up with his/her excavated earth(dirt). This converted the pond into a puddle. I was so b. mad I caught the mole and dug a hole and buried him/her alive.

Did It Work?

Or was it death by suffocation? After all your work, and you end up with a mole with no respect or sense of direction!

Could you patch the liner?

Moles are very troublesome. But I watched someone's golden retriever solve the problem, by tracing their route, then furiously pouncing, digging, grabbing and shaking. Since his job was done, it was time for the cleanup crew to go to work!
