How to Build a Wildlife Pond: Part 2 – Installing the Liner

| May 13, 2012 | 11 Comments

Watch in HD. Series of videos showing the construction of a large wildlife pond at a school in Gosforth, Newcastle (North East England). The pond will have beach area, dipping platform and hibernaculum and will be planted with native plants. This video shows how we install the underlay and liner. Since the ground is very rocky and full of trash, laying a liner is more difficult than with a good soil base and therefore more care is needed before the liner can be laid. The next video in the series shows the installation of the walling stone around the pond edge.

    As mentioned in part 1, this was dug by the school contrator whoi did a great job with a digger. There are quite a few of my pond job videos where I am using a digger but most of the time we dig the smaller ones by hand.
