Long lasting pond liners can be cut for custom pond or water garden construction
These flexible, rugged, long-lasting liners are made of 45mil EPDM rubber especially for water garden applications, and produced to the strictest specifications. Liners carry a 20-year manufacturer's warranty. To reduce punctures due to sharp rocks, install Pond Liner Underlayment.
How to Calculate Liner Size: To find the dimensions of the liner you need, take the desired length and width of your pond and add two times the desired maximum depth. You'll need some overlap on the pond banks to secure the liner in place, so add an additional 1-1/2 to 2 feet to these figures.
The following Pond Sizes are based on 2' depth with 2' overlap for securing:
10' x 15'
4' x 9'
15' x 25'
9' x 19'
15' x 50'
9' x 44'
15' x 100'
9' x 94'
20' x 50'
14' x 44'
20' x 100'
14' x 94'

Pond Planning Tips
Before breaking ground, always consult with local utilities, and if necessary, obtain permits. Once you begin, take your time. Your new pond is a work of art you'll enjoy for years.
For best success with flowering pond lilies, plan the position of your pond so that it receives at least six hours of sunlight. Too much sun can overheat the water, so shade is equally important. Positioning your pond close to your home can help, and may also simplify electrical and water hook-ups.
Pond size and shape are always important decisions, but when it comes to the health of your pond, depth is even more critical. Koi prefer a depth of at least 3 feet. To prevent water from freezing completely in winter you may need to dig deeper, up to four feet or more if you live in the far north.
Select your pond components in advance from a knowledgeable and experienced supplier. Kits are an excellent option because the matched components always fit, and the directions are easy to follow. For a trouble-free installation, select the best quality components you can afford.
To help ensure long-term success, you'll need to determine how much space you have for a pond, how large you want your pond to be, what kind of pond you want, and how much you can afford to spend. Learn how to plan and budget for your new pond.
