Very nice John. What did you use to keep the water in, a preformed liner, or one of the butyl rubber/pvc type liners?
We had a nice pond at our previous house and we want to build one here. I was looking at a Polyex liner the other week which comes with free underlay and a 35 year warranty. It seemed ok and was a fraction of the cost of butyl rubber, but i have always used butyl, which has never let me down, so i am unsure whether to go for the cheaper one.
The shape just follows the existing wall. The driveway opens out to the carport where the wall angles.
The liner is a polytex one from Bradshaws. The free liner was a bit thin, more like the fleece you use as a weed suppressent under gravel, so I put a layer of sand under the botton as well. The liner has no stretch like butyl so is difficult to fit neatly round the corners but otherwise seems OK.
woody i use the big blue plastice tarp covers my pond is breeze block and is 12x8x3 foot the bottom is a layer of sand with an old carpet as underlay i built it over 15 years ago ,i change the liner about every 3 years it doesn't cost that much and the carpet is still good the filter system is black plastic water tanks .
Waka, the pond has Koi carp, golden orfe and plain old goldfish in it. We bought all the carp as 4-5 inch fish about 5 years ago, about a fiver each I think. The biggest is about 16" now and would cost about £40 or more. I just find it relaxing to sit on the edge of the pond, beer in hand and watch them.
