Calculating Your Pond Liner Size

How to measure for a new pond liner sheet.  

To work out the right size pond liner you need, enter the maximum length, width and depth measurements of the hole you have dug. Type these into our calculator below to get the pond liner required. Please note that our calculator adds 30 cms (1 foot) to the total sheet size to allow for over lapping the edge.

Top Tip - Estimate before you start digging 

Sketch out your pond, or mark it out in your garden, then measure the maximum length and width you desire. To consider the pond depth, larger fish should have at least 90cm of depth while a more natural pond with smaller fish could be 50 cms deep. We recommend completing any excavation before ordering avoiding a possible sizing error. (Bespoke cut pond liner sizes cannot be returned). 

Measuring a newly dug pond or replacement pond liner

Take the maximum length and width measurements by stretching a measuring tape over the pond excavation. Then enter the maximum depth measurements into the calculator below to get your minimum liner size required in imperial or metric, depending on your preference.
