    The point is that soil when it is wet can turn to mud and then slide to lower levels such as the bottom of a pond. The water inside the liner will give way and let the mud slide on down.

    That is why a deep pond in soil using liner should be on very well packed soil and then have good dranage so that the walls behind the liner don't create a mud slide.

    Boy would I LOVE to do a fiberglass pond. I really don't want to do liner. I know even if it lasts 15 years, when it does need to be replaced, I'll be too old to DIY. I would love a permanent liner for the new pond.

    I have a dumb question. Is fiberglass permanent?

    Fiberglass is also very expensive and labor intensive when done correctly. The best way to do a liner type pond at this point is with polyurea. You can still just do the "retaining wall" type of construction as you would with liner with a geotextile layer over the dirt areas and the poly sprayed over it all at the same time. Fiberglass has very little flexibility and can flake or crack over the long haul. Polyurea done correctly will literally last a lifetime with an elasticity of 400% to 700%.

    It's doubtful I can afford polyurea either.
