You can buy liners in different sizes. How big of a pond are we talking? I doubt it will be so big that you won't be able to buy a liner for it, it just may be a really expensive plan.

Byez! Very Happy

Hi Danny29,
Well, when the time comes, you can price out three options:
1. Concrete. Poured, re-enforced cement ponds are "old school" and prone to cracks which can be a major fix it job.
2. Rubber membrane liner. lengths of liner can be glued together to create really big ponds (your cheapest alternative).
3. Clay lined. Find a supplier of clay soil and have some trucked in to line your pond with. Clay will retain water with minimal seepage.
OR BETTER YET!
Be a true fishaholic and buy your home based solely on the fact that it already has land with a high clay content. Then it's just "dig and wait for the rain" Wink .
Goodluck!
