Pond Construction Types

Flexible Pond Liners

Liners are the most popular and cost effective way of creating a garden pond. They are available in a wide range of materials and sizes and allow you to pond-liner-3.jpgmake a pond of any shape. Remember that the manufacturers guarantee does not include punctures -so it is worth taking care to install correctly, using a good quality underlay.

There are many different types of pond liners available. World of Water stock a large range from budget to heavy duty liners.

All are quality liners offering long life. The budget liners are ideal for smaller simpler pools where children and pets are less likely to damage the liner. Heavy duty liners are ideal for larger pools and situations where they need to be more durable.

Preformed Ponds

Pre-formed ponds are made out of plastic or fibreglass, and are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. They are extremely durable, and are popular with many, because once installed they have a smooth surface without creases. Don't be misled into buying one too small for your requirements - they look far bigger out of the ground than they do when they are installed. You will be able to see examples of pre-formed pools both out of the ground and installed at any of our centres, to give you an idea of the difference in scale.

Concrete Construction

This is the least popular method as it can be more expensive than other methods. Foundations must be solid and reinforced to prevent cracking if the subsoil shifts during the course of the year. Once rendered, the pool must be painted with at least two coats of a purpose made pond paint.
