My wife and I are are considering putting in a pond in a low swampy region
near our house. I have seen many pond web sites etc and they all talk about
'the liner'. My goal is to build an inexpensive and as natural of a Garden
pond as possible. I am interested in a pond which is an extension of my
garden - not necessarily a fish pond.
Do I need a liner if the soil will support the water?
Is there anyway to determine if the soil will support the water (besides
Are there bio conditions that will be problematic with an unlined pond or
will this be easier all around?
