Do You Have Any Ground Level Pool & Pond Tips?

Indeed we do.

Things are different if you are doing a ground level piece. Just like traditional pond construction, there should be a plastic lining or coating material directly under the Pal Tiya Premium everywhere the water flows. With a large area, the ground can shift over time and it is important to have a flexible and water tight seal. Pool lining materials are available at most home and garden stores. 

Pal Tiya Premium made rocks and other features can be constructed separately over time and then glued together. 
If your water feature is small, say less than four foot square, consider constructing it on a heavy plastic pallet. This can be buried, and if you wish to move it in the future, can be more easily transported as a single piece.
