Pond Lining Guide
The most popular material for do-it-yourselfers is flexible pond liners. Unlike preformed ponds, using a flexible liner does not confine you to a set size and design. EPDM Pond Liners are the most popular choice for water gardens since they are very flexible, puncture-resistant, and long-lasting. We choose polyethylene for lining big ponds since it is lighter, and simpler to handle. Polyethylene liners may also be produced in one piece up to 60,000 square feet.
Measuring your lining
To make a water garden, add the depth twice to both the length and width. Then add 1′ to each value for liner overhang. Add the depth at the deepest point to the length plus the breadth for a big pond. Then, to allow for burying at the borders, add 5′ to each figure.
Always try to use a one-piece liner to line your pond. Special tapes are available for seaming liners together, however, this should only be done as a last option. Consider this: saving a few bucks on a cheap liner may wind up costing you a lot of time and stress in the long run. If your liner readily breaks or punctures, you will have to empty the pond, remove all stones and the old liner, and start again. Save time and money by using high-quality materials the first time. When put with the protective underlayment beneath it, our liner will offer you years of enjoyment.
