“I guess this means making the edges safer somehow?”
There are 2 types of safety edges for ponds: stepper and beach. Each has a different way of making ponds safer.
Stepper edges are usually made of large, flat stones contractors fit together and stabilize. They clearly define the edges of a pond. They also make great areas to stand or sit and view the pond closely, but not too close.
“That’ll be a good addition. The pond will have a definite edge people can see so they won’t get to close. Also it’ll be great for sitting on and dipping our feet in,” Heather notes.
Beach edges are, well, like coming out of or going into a beach! It’s a sloping, sandy edge like you find where the water and sand meet.
“Now that’s cool, I’d love to have a pond safety edge like that,” James says happily.
