Pond Filters and Construction

Choosing building materials for your pond is often difficult if you are just starting out in learning about ponds and construction but the more you read, the more you will understand your choices, and that you can make the right ones for your environment and the type of pond that you want to build. The type of building materials that you will choose will be one of the most important decisions you can make next to where to place your water garden.

Every type of material that you consider using in constructing your water garden will bring you different advantages and disadvantages. One thing that is most important, if possible, do not think about the cost of the pond you are building, but the long life, and the easy care of the pond that you are building so you enjoy your water garden for as long as possible without the worry of repairs or replacement of portions of the water garden.

One of the simplest methods of building a water garden is going to include peacast ponds. A peacast pond is a type of fiberglass plastic preformed pond, that will be easy to install, easy to care for and great for areas where you want to create a water garden. One of the drawbacks to this type of pond is that you are limited to what the designers have created in forming the precast pond liners.

Pond liners are another type of preformed pond that you can use in constructing your water garden. A liner is one of the most popular types of materials used to construct a water pond, as you can use it to line the area that you dig out, that you want to build with a little more flexibility in building your water garden. Polythene sheeting is somewhat fragile, and can break easily in the hot or the in the cold environment. Butyl rubber is another type of pond liner, one of the better types of pond liners that will not break or crack as easily but is still very easy to work with in building a water garden.

Fiberglass pond liners are another type of popular liner for the water garden. The water garden that is preformed or preshaped will fill in nicely with the fiberglass pond liner. A fiberglass liner will last for years, and without sharp objects it can last for years to come for your enjoyment.
