    Need help/advice with pond liner folds

    Hello everyone

    We are in the process of building our pond and I need some advice. We just put the liner in lastnight and that is where I’m having an issue. Our pond is an “L” shape (I’ll attack photo with dimensions and issue location) and we are having a issue with the fold on the L corner. I don’t want to cut and seal it ... I’m sure I’ll have an extra fold someplace but I can’t figure it out without having a big fold on the bottom. I have a bottom drain so I can’t have a fold on the bottom. Any ideas on how to fold this correctly? I really appreciate any advice

    Thanks but mine is an L shape and I am only having the issues with the outside corner ... The other corners will be no problem.

    I understand but whatever fold you end up with I think the liner tape to bind it down is maybe a good idea.

    Don't forget the tip about putting about a foot of water ing to get he bottom flat then do your folds.

    You testing your present wrapping skills? I have a small L-shaped goldfish pond in my front yard. I put in about 6 inches of water at first to help... i wasn't fun. There are many combinations you can do for folds... just be cognizant of how you are going to be viewing the pond most of the time and "hide" as many folds away from that view.
