ground type safe for liner?
so, we've got a space next to our house that i want to install a pondless waterfall... so same thing as a pond, just full of rocks.
however, the ground is questionable, to me. it looks like someone at some point used pebbles for aesthetics, so this area is literally a mix of dirt and stone. it would be a huge pain in the butt to dig out the area entirely.
now, would it be safe to follow the usual steps in putting in a pond? I am hopeful that i would end up digging down far to get past these damn pebbles, but i'm hoping i don't have to excavate the entire area.
though, the only flip side is that i could sift out the stones and use them in the pond liner instead of having to have some delivered.
