The Pond Area


We started by setting out the pond area equidistant from the house and the outside wall. This is going to be a raised pond so footings needn’t be so deep but we still have to find a level.

Once we found our level we dug down another 6 inches or so and back-filled with concrete.

Now the concrete is set, we take the central soil away to make it easier for constructing the raised pond.

First few courses on and levels are spot on!

Brickwork all finished – just to clean up for the liner…

Building of the pond 6

First, we put in an inch layer of sand to help soften the corners followed by a barrier lining – slightly cushioned – to protect the pond liner from the shop brickwork. Another 2-3 inches of sand was then added before the final liner.

Building of the pond 7

The pond liner was pushed in to the pond and folded evenly around the edges. The edging stones were then cemented in place. An overnight water test proved successful and there you have it!
