Lay the plain pond liner over the plastic pond and push it down into the grooves, removing as many wrinkles as possible; this liner requires no adhesive.
Trim the edges of the plain pond liner to fit the size of the pond, leaving a 6- to 8-inch overlay around the pond edges.
Lay the plain pond liner over the waterfall path with a 6- to 8-inch overlay on both sides. The liner should overlap with the pond at the end of the waterfall path so that water flows into the pond easily.
Coat the the dry, plain pond liner inside the pond with pond-liner adhesive, and then coat the back of the PVC pond liner that has pebbles or stone pictures. If pebble or stone liners are only available in-single size sheets, use as many sheets as needed to cover the plain pond liner.
Heat the adhesive on the back of the pebble or stone pond liner with a hair dryer on the hot heat setting. Heating the adhesive makes it easier to adhere it to the other pond liner.
Put the pebble or stone pond liner in place over the plain pond liner, working from one side to the next. Smooth out the wrinkles as much as possible, and allow the adhesive to dry completely for about 1 hour.
Add the pebble or stone liner to the waterfall path in the same way. Apply glue to the plain pond liner and the pebble or stone liner, heat the glue and smooth it into place.
Cover the overlapping edges with real stones, rocks and pebbles; start by adding larger stones, and then fill in the gaps with smaller rocks and pebbles. Try to use stones, rocks and pebbles that match the pebbles and stones on the PVC pond liner.
Fill up the pond, hook up the pump to the waterfall and turn on the water.
