I get so frustrated when I can recall that I saw something on here, then can't find it again! You guys just have too many good ideas & suggestions to keep up with..... :D

Anyway, a while back someone had drawings of what the liner would look like coming up & over a berm, then how it was "finished off." Seem to recall that they showed the liner going over the berm, then back over itself... After reading PECAN's post of 4-24, have starting thinking I need to tweak things a bit. Would appreciate it if any of you guys who have ideas regarding ways to hide a liner would post drawings. I didn't take that into account when we dug, but now wanting to add a little "rock-shelf" in a few places (especially where the turtles will be) in order to hide and anchor the liner.

Jw will post a picture of her lining when she read this, the liner is slightly below water, goes across the below water ledge up and out of the pond. Rocks stacked on the ledge that is below the water, rocks also stacked on top up and out of the pond. If the water level changes you don't see the liner, the rocks on top of those rocks, cover the edge and the berm

Yeah, WHISKEY, exactly like that!!!! Love the options!!! You GOOGLED that? But still trying to figure out how you're supposed to treat the "tail" or last bit of liner .... Does it go up & over, up & under, under & over, loop back, loop under .... I'm a little dense when it comes to figuring some things out.

BTW, took a screen shot -- won't lose it this time ;)

Look closely at the picts they show the tail of the liner, You can basically do anything, as long as it is above water level.

It's basically what was said and shown above. Just a ledge w/ rocks and then go up w/ more liner over a berm of dirt and place more rocks on top of the finished edge. That lower ledge you can make just a few inches high and the rocks you choose will cover the liner. Actually you could make more of those shelves if you wanted to............like stairs. Any size and kinds of rock will do. Ok I just went out and took these pix especially for you TM :)

Mostly it's Parrots feather just starting to get it's green buds and also some of the Ludwigia primrose vines that I got from CE. The Ludwigia tho has such tiny reddish buds right now that all you can see is the vine.

Love the pics, JW -- thank you! Are your rocks on a liner-covered ledge?

All I gotta do now is get some rocks! May have to start out with landscape bricks just to have something to hold the liner in place. Oh, and gotta go back and put some little "rock shelves" in...

Yes rocks are on top of liner all around. There are some added rocks in the soil too for decoration in places tho.

I didn't try tm, just picked up xx amount and used them until they were gone. Then go more, still have three piles to use, just small piles. Our wonderful maryland rock has turned to mush so needs to be replaced.

I am not sure there is a real clear cut way to figure it out. There are lots of variables you have to consider. If you are doing a waterfall you will use more depending on how you stack or place them. I have been collecting rocks for 8 years now and just got some more a few weeks ago.
