Hi,

I want to add a small pond 150 to 200 g to my new garden bed . There is a new
Flexpond on the market that looks nice. It is rolled up so easy to ship :)

Has anyone used this liner ?? Did you like it ??

Thanks
Shannon

Wow, I haven't seen those before (or didn't know what I was looking at if I did). I do know that preformed ponds can be difficult to install because it's very hard to get the shape of the underlying hole the same as the shape of the preformed pond, and if it's not right then the water will stress the liner quite a bit when all of its weight starts pressing out on it. For the stepped liners, we used to tell people to set it on the ground and trace around the tiers onto the ground so you knew where to dig. It requires a lot of back and forth, digging out the deepest part so that the next deepest part is on the ground, digging out the next deepest part and then digging the deepest part deeper, etc. With a flexible preformed liner this seems even harder, as it would be even more difficult to see the shape you were digging and leveling, and it seems like the liner would remain floppy and deformed up until it actually had water in it.

Personally it sounds like more trouble than I'd have patience for, but if you do try it, I'd love to hear about it (and see pictures).

Thanks for the reply. I have had a hard material pond once before and it worked ok. I was manly considering this
type because I don't want a large pond and I am really not sure if my husband will be able to help me They also seam
to be affordable ..

Thanks again Smiling More to think about
