Installing a prefabricated pond

The advantage of a prefabricated pond, is that they are easy to install, the shape is predetermined and they come with built-in selves for marginal plant growing. They are available in a variety of depths and dimensions. The downside, however is that they don’t look as natural as a pond built and lined with a rubber or PVC pond liner.

Prefabricated ponds can also be bought in a range of materials, from moulded plastic designs to more durable fibreglass, PVC and rubberized compounds. The prices of prefabricated ponds are largely dependent on the durability of the pond.

Most prefabricated ponds have a lip around the edge. It is difficult to hide the lip using grass or other vegetation, unless it is a very narrow-lipped pond. But, a lip can be covered using attractive paving slabs.

A prefabricated pond offers a convenient way of achieving a formal look.

Before going out to buy a prefabricated pond, it is recommended that some preparation is done first:

– source and study catalogues to get as much information on designs and product information,

– visit a garden or aquatic centre for ideas,

– once you have found the design you want, write down the dimensions and then mark out the pond on an area of your garden sited for the pond. You can use a hose pipe, rope or sand to do this,

– if you intend to stock fish, check that the depth is sufficient,

– check that the material of the pond is durable and robust enough to give many years of service.
