Good question Daz, when I fill mine in am going to just fill it with hardcore and flag over it.
Suppose if you want to grass it or plant over it you would have to hire or borrow a core drill to drill lots of holes .
Or hire a kango hammer breaker, or better still a man with a kango hammer breaker.
Sad to see ponds go ,but do post pics we only usually see pond builds.

when i filled mine in i removed all the fiberglass & the bottom drain dish, which left a nice sump hole through to the natural ground course & with concrete being porous i just back filled the hole with aggregate & Wacker-plated it down & topped it off with gravel.
