I'm ready to add rock to the bottom to finish off the pond. What I meant was, I have both at my disposal to use. My question is which would be best?Can you clarify your question - are you saying your pond currently has both, or you've read both suggestions?
River rock is the way to go in my opinion. And you want a layer just deep enough to cover the liner.
Disagree 100%. I mean, to each their own, but I am able to easily scoop leaves and debris from my gravel bottomed pond. Ease of cleaning is no reason to add rocks or gravel to a pond. And there are reasons why many believe it leads to a healthier eco-system in a pond.Put large ones in, they will be easier to remove when you realize that you can't keep the bottom clean. A liner is difficult to get leaves and other stuff that blows into the pond off. Rocks make it nearly impossible.
