frugal ideas for pond liner, rocks, plants?
I dug out a 6' by 8' pond, 1 foot deep, in my backyard and would love to finish it this month but the budget is tight! Any ideas on what I can use for inexpensive pond liner? The local hardware store sells it by the foot but it will be almost $100. I called a few roofing places to buy a scrap of EDPM but noone had any. I was wondering if a strong tarp would work?
I found a pump/fountain on ebay for under $20, that was a $50 savings from Home Depot, plus more gal per hour!
And for the finishing touch, flat rocks and pond plants...where can I find these inexpensively? Is it legal to dig a few water plants from wild streams/creeks?
if I purchase, which to choose that spread/grow quickly?!
I looked over on the ponds forum but they seem to do their ponds up right, and I just want a happy little puddle, on the cheap! to share with the wildlife...thanks for any help you offer!
