Building a pond is an exciting project for any keen gardener or fish enthusiast. Two important initial decisions to be made are deciding on the shape and size of pond to fit an appropriate location in your garden.

A box-welded pond liner is fabricated in a factory to the exact pond dimensions of formal vertically sided pond designs.

Rubber pond liners such as Butyl and Epalyn offer longevity, flexibility and excellent durability.
