stepping stones
 
a bit off the wall but ill try!!
i have an 8mx8m walled sunken area that i am converting into an pond ,my problem is that i want to have "stepping stones" in it as the area around is all flower beds that i wish to keep so the question is how do i construct these stepping stones on top of my liner with out damaging it ?? will a liner be flexable enough to build underneath and run over the top??

stepping stones
 
All of the books I have been reading on pond construction would
indicate that this is totally possible to do on top of the liner. They
show the use of a second layer of liner under the pier for the stepping
stone like this:

_________
| | - Your "stepping stone"
----------------------------------------------------------- -
Waterline
| |
| |
| | - bricks or stone or whatever (cement and cinder
blocks would be good)
| |
| |
_ |_______|_____ - Extra layer of liner
________________________________________ - Pond Liner


You can also use a scrap of old carpet between the two layers of liner
for added cushion or below the overall liner as well.

While you *could* stretch the liner to cover the piers, this would add
a lot of "wasted" liner surface (and be expensive and probably fairly
ugly as well...
