Using sedum mat to hide a pond liner

Sedum mat is most often associated with green roofing, but it also makes a fabulous edging for a pond.

The edge of a pond liner or the “lip” around a preformed pond can look quite unsightly, especially if you are trying to create a natural looking water feature.

At the 2013 Letchworth Food and Garden Show, Maxine Tricker designed a show garden using a preformed pond disguised with Enviromat sedum matting.  For this project, she was ably assisted by Noodles, the inquisitive Hungarian Puli.

Noodles checks the quality of the sedum mat.  She’s  particularly impressed by the texture.
