We can cut any shape, any angle and then join the liners on-site. This allows for a bespoke fit.

All types of projects undertaken

A lot of hard work is required for each process in order to complete island moats. Our team begins by excavating the moats so they can be fleeced and ready for lining. The bespoke lining sleeves we create connect all our pumps for each moat, for either filtration or streams. This allows the pipe and liner to be effectively watertight, so we can complete the finishing touches to the landscape. Based in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire and covering the whole UK let us help with your next lake and pond liner projects.
