Flexible Water Garden Liners

Flexible water garden liners allow gardeners to install pools, streams and waterfalls in almost any size, shape and style and to locate them almost any place in the landscape. They are made from a variety of materials including polyethylene, polyvinylchloride (PVC) and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). Liners vary greatly in thickness, cost and quality.

The following should be considered when buying flexible water garden liners:

  • Make sure the material will not kill plants and fish.
  • Check the ultraviolet durability of the material, as some become brittle over time if exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Make sure the material is thick and durable enough to withstand the conditions of the site, especially any protruding rocks.
  • Check to see if the liner comes with the necessary underlayment already attached. If not you will have to provide it.

Remember you can repair torn or punctured liners with special products made for that purpose.
