The fish pond is pretty much a staple of any British garden – of a certain size, in any case – and keeping fish, whether it’s goldfish, koi carp or otherwise, can be an extremely rewarding hobby. Providing you keep your pond regularly filtered and fresh, looking after aquatic creatures couldn’t be easier. However, there are downsides to owning certain types of pond – certainly, the days of simply digging out a big hole in your back garden and filling it with hose water may well be behind us – but why is this?
A good fish pond is one that last all year round, one that is impervious to weather, to cold, and of course to erosion and the passage of time. The problems with a natural pond that has been dug straight out of the ground lie in the fact that soil is likely to change with the seasons – it can harden, turn to mud, or even erode – and it’s not exactly providing the best quality water for your fish, either. Pond lining, therefore, has become popular in recent years, but many fish owners have struggled to find the best lining material to withstand time, weather and nature itself. Some may opt for hard plastics – but when it comes to finding a material that is impervious to the ravages of nature, you really can’t go wrong with fibreglass!
