Q.Koi Ponds to Flower Beds

patty73717 added on January 24, 2011 | Answered

We bought a house with 4 koi ponds including a stream. We have given the koi away and drained the ponds. I would like to make them into flower beds. What do I need to do? Thanks

If they have liners, you should remove the liners, though if you will only be planting annuals in these beds this is not as important but the liners will still need to be punctured to allow for drainage. After the liners are removed, you only need to fill the ponds with good soil and they will be ready to plant.
