    I am always on the look out for cheap stuff for my projects and just bought this liner and underlay brand new never used from Gumtree for £25 :)

        A bit of both i guess, i will have to put two fish in it :biggrin:,

        I only started looking last night made a offer on a preformed £30 that wasn't excepted then spotted this, at least with the liner i can make it the shape i want it.

              I had a change of heart with the liner and didn't pick it up, i am back on the lookout for a preformed.

                  Reason being before i go any further with clearing the area its going to be full of roots theirs a two foot wide + tree stump here so i will raise the pond up slightly rather than break my back digging lots of roots out [​IMG][​IMG]:dbgrtmb:

                        How exciting :). I look forward - as I'm sure many others on here do - to progress updates and pics :).

                        Any luck with sourcing a preformed yet?

                                That's a shame. Could you perhaps have a mini pond if a full size is not possible.
