Hello All,

I’ve be studying this forum for the past few weeks and this is where my project is thus far. I’m about to cut the excess liner to fit the contour of the pond. Due to the irregular shape of the pond (to fit the contour of the pool walkway) and narrowing on one end, this gives me a lot left over of the original 15’ x 25’ liner (45 mil).

Any advice before I make this cut? Once cut, I can’t turn back.

Any advice on how to hide or camouflage the unsightly folds and bulges? Rock on a roll?

Any suggestions on a cosmetic improvement?

As seen in the pic’s, the liner (as is now) covers the pool walkway and literally goes in to the pool. My goal with this excess is to expand the pond later this year. I have 2 inches of clearance between the bricks and the back of the house with the liner in-between. My thought is to run pipe in this space and have water pouring out from the bricks in various areas.

Thank you

Jim

I built a wall out side my inner wall that held the liner and tucked my extra liner down between the 2 walls and sure glad i did because i raised the height of the pond to make it deeper .You can see the 2 walls in my rebuild .

Do not do any trimming until project is nearly complete--all rock is in place and several test runs have been made checking water flow.

Pleats are your friend. Over time they become unnoticeable.

It's going to be very hard to hide the front edges so that they don't show. One way might be to build a decorative brick or stone wall in front and fill it in with dirt then ground cover at the top.
