Filling in a concrete pond ideas

1E5959A7-0DA1-461D-BFF0-880734D9F572.jpeg

We have this concrete pond which is now empty but wondering the best way to fill it. Can I use some form on cement from Bunnings or is this a job for a professional? Thank you

You don't need to fill it with concrete only sand or soil.

If you want to use it as a garden area punch a hole in the bottom and fill with garden mix or soil.

If you just want to reclaim the corner remove the top rocks and depending on the thickness of the concrete use a crowbar or jackhammer to break it up , at least the top to below ground level you can use bits to help fill hole and then level with sand or soil. Make sure you put a drain hole in it.

Or lever it out and then fill the hole with soil or sand if you think you might pave later. If you get it out in one piece without cracking you might even be able to sell it.
