Pond Liner

Posted: 29/10/2017 at 11:42

Couple of pictures of the project. This is a good time to do it, you can collect all the rain water in butts and bins and let the pond naturally fill up. It doesn’t take long, if you have lots of shelter and wild grass and weeds around the edge the frogs will be spawning next Spring.  It’s a lovely project and a great time waster, you can sit down there with your coffee and just listen to the creatures.

Pond Liner

One of the regulars here (Lyn) has the 25 yr liner from Bradshaw's, and I bought the same one for the pond I have here. I think it's the one Redwing is also talking about. Take a look at their online sites and you'll get an idea of price. They often have deals on as well. I recently made my tiny pond a bit bigger and the liner was free. 


I bought one about 15  years or more ago which was identical, for a previous pond. It's still there - I live round the corner from it now, and a lady I was chatting to last week told me there are now newts in it.

 Hi, thats me!


I have the Bradshaw liner, brown side up, it’s actually got a lifetime guarantee, don’t know who’s lifetime they refer to but I’m sure it will see me out😀


This is ours, there are a lot of items and article of interest on this site, I love it.

I would agree with Dove, no need to replace, cut them to one foot from the ground, next summer they will be fantastic.


They will grow from the base, thicken up and cover the fence in no time, they thrive on a good cut down.

I wouldn’t even waste money on buying Perspex or waste time making one, a gust of wind and it will take off.


that Perspex is so light, really not worth the effort. 

Is this Laurel (and is it hardy?)

It roots very easily if you want to do cuttings, or leave it on the ground after pruning and it will root.

Down here, in Cornwall, all the cooked food collected by waste recyclers is used to fuel a small power station.

To Fell Or Not To Fell

I think that must depend on each council, I’ve never heard of permission to cut down quick growing conifers. They are not native trees, mostly are short live anyway.  That’s why they grow acres of them on the Moor and fell them after 30 years.  Three inch trunks?  are You sure? 


I had a row of Beech trees cut down a few years ago, the council said...do what you like, they’re on your property!


It was the fashion to plant them a few years back, everybody had them! The OP is only talking about a few, I’m sure the neighbours will be delighted.
