pond lining

fons jaspers asked 14 years ago

I’m planning a pond, about 10 x 3 mtr, wha is a bit wide for standard lining sheets. So, I’m thinking of using clay. Where to get the right type of clay, and helpful instructions on how to do that?

The pond is not too wide as sheets of synthetic rubber can easily be joined with rubber solution, just like an inner tube puncture repair. Lakes and reservoirs of large size are made like this.

Clay for pond lining is a lot of work and not all that reliable. It needs to be heavy pottery clay, or marl, laid 15cm deep, and heavily and evenly compacted.
