    Months/years later when they were doing some pond maintenance, the soil next to the pond collapsed the pond wall.
    Depends on how it's done and what materials are used.

    My pond has 1/4" "hardibacker" walls and glassed directly to the dirt.

    The fiberglass cloth I used, 99% of people wouldn't pay for. Very heavy, expensive stuff.

    As with anything in this world if a job is done right the first time, and proplerly thought out................ It's a one time deal.
