Creating Your Own Preformed Water Garden Pond


There are various preformed pond liner that is made out of rugged high-density polyethlene. They come in rectangular and free-form shapes with various widths, lengths, multiple built-in ledges and zones for placing your aquatic plants. I used 59" x 39"x 18" preformed pond which holds about 60 gallons of water. From my family room I have a focal view point so I decided to put the pond above ground instead of in the ground.
