What material should I use to build my pond?

The first decision you need to make is what type of pond you would like to have, a natural look or a more formal looking pond.

 

Natural Fish Ponds

Ponds can be made of any material such as EPDM rubber liner, concrete or a free form prefabricated pond.

Liner and pre-fab koi ponds are definitely easiest for any DIY person to install. It's simply a case of digging a hole to shape, putting the pond in and doing some rock work around.  Concrete ponds require a bit more skill and require sealing once the concrete is set. You may want to consider letting the professionals do this for you to avoid leaks.

 

Formal Fish Ponds

Formal fish pond and water features are usually some kind of geometric shape like a square, rectangle or circular.  We have a range of prefabricated ponds to suit this application or you can build the pond by pouring a 100mm slab and building up the walls.

If you are using a prefabricated koi pond you will need to have the sides of the pond fully supported, whether that be in the ground or built up with walls.  

In most cases it would be better to get a professional in to build a fish pond like this for you.

If you are in the Sydney region and require help building your koi pond or water feature, be sure to let us know, and we'll see how we can assist you.

The Fish Works offers competitive prices on construction materials for fishpond construction, to both landscapers and the do-it-yourself garden renovator. We have everything you need to make your own fish pond, from pond liners, pond pumps, pond filters and plumbing supplies.

 

Fish Pond liner

 

We stock only the thickest EDPM fish pond liner supplying liner to many trades around Sydney.  Although it is more expensive than PVC liner, we only stock and recommend EPDM rubber liner as it is UV stablised meaning that it will not break down in sunlight.  All the other fish pond liners do, which mean that 3 or 4 years down the track your pond WILL leak, and the liner will need to be replaced.  EPDM liner is guaranteed for 20 years.  That's why we sell it and nothing else...

 

Firestone EPDM liner is 1.2 mm thick and comes in widths of 3m, 4.5m and 6m.  We can get it at any length up to 30 metres.

 

$25 per square metre

Fibreglass Fish Ponds and Plastic Pre-fabricated Fish Ponds

 

The tanks are slightly tapered from top to bottom.  They are strong and reliable and will cost you a fraction of the cost of a concrete cement rendered and fibreglass sealed pond.

 

These fish ponds only available from our Sydney store.

Please contact us for freight quotes if delivery is required out of the Sydney metro area.
