Question by Lankinstein: How can I properly remove thick, swampy mud from the bottom of my garden pond?
All the water from my garden pond has gone, it is now quarter-full with a green-black, thick mud. What is the best way to get rid of this, so i can either remove my pond, or refill it with water?
Thanks

Use a shovel. Or put some gloves on and do it by hand. If you have a pool skimmer that will work. When your done just hose it out with clean water and dry with towel.

    rubber gloves and a rubbermaid box type container… fill up the box and haul it out and dump it…. untill there’s nothing left in the bottom but something you can wipe out with an old towel…. do that…. then rinse with a little bit of water…. scoop that out with a plastic cup and the box…. then really run some water in there, to where it’s an inch or so deep… swish that around and then sop that up with the towel and wring it out in the box….. if you do a good job, it should be good enuff to fill with water and let the filter finish the job…..
