Choose a level site in an open location, preferably where it can be easily viewed from your house or patio.
Do not create a pond in a frost pocket or very exposed area.
Keep it away from overhanging trees – falling leaves will rot in the pond and roots may puncture the liner.
Choose a location where the pond water can reflect an attractive item like a statue or a plant.
Choose a place near water and electrical sources.
Flexible Liners can be shaped and sized to fit your needs and provide a natural look. Buy the heaviest liner
that you can afford and choose black for the most natural look.
For the greatest durability EPMD rubber is the recommended liner material.
A common mistake is to make a pond too small. If you want clear water, the pond should be at least 6 ft. x 4 ft. x 18 inches deep (1.8m x 1.2m x 45 cm). This is the recommended minimum size if you plan to have fish or plants.
Determine the maximum length, width and depth of you pond.
Double the depth and add it to both the length and the width values. Example if you want a pond that’s 6 ft. x 8 ft. x 2 ft deep (2m x 2.5m x 60 cm) you’ll need a liner that’s 10 ft. x 2 ft. (about 3m x 3.5m)
