Hiding a pond liner

Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out a way to hide the pond liner when the water drops due to evaporation etc. The only way I can think is to put soil on top of the liner, the flat section, then lay stones/paving on top of that, but that is still going to show the liner when the water drops.

A friend suggested placing upside down turf along the pond but this adds cost and I'm not sure it would drop away once the turf degrades.

Above is a picture of a pond we did earlier this year. I'm happy with how it turned out but it's just when the water drops slightly, like here, the liner becomes visible.

I'm completely stuck for more ideas and hoping to do a nice repair job on my girlfriend's pond to get a nice photo for my website and tidy that part of garden up.

Thanks everyone,

Justin

  • Hiding the liner is something that needs to be thought about in construction, with overhanging paving, shelves for marginal plants, rocks bedded onto shelves in the pond so that the liner is hidden behind them etc.
    'Retro-hiding' could be done with marginal plants on the far side of this pond, which is the part that will be visible. Or why not just top it up in the evening - it's not very big?

  • "Stone Faced Pond Liner" which is gravel stuck to a backing sheet a foot or so wide you can drape around the edge (under the edging rocks, above the liner) or "rock on a roll" which is sheet that looks like the folds and pleats of rock, rather than the stark black of pond liner.
