    No worries, man.
    I tend to make anything as if I was making it for myself.

    @pondguru It is a very good looking pond and looks very well made. Just very impressive!

    Not enough. The wall took ages.
    I think it was about £2.5K (may have been less) but I have real problems with memory. I just remember thinking when I was half way through the wall that it was way too cheap and no other landscapers I know would have bothered making a pond finished this way.
    I’ve done a few more like this since and each time, the wall takes an age but it makes a unique effect – bit like a trademark as people know its one of mine.

    How much did this pond cost?

  7. pondguru

    As the wall is a double skin wall, the letterbox sits in the cantre and the front is masked by thinner stone on the pond side. I really should have done a more detailed video with some explaination of this pond as there were a few different processes involved.
    The letterbox can (and often is) mounted straight onto the wall but looks very artificial done that way. It has inlets in the bottom and back. You just cap the one you don’t want to use.

    Great looking pond. Im currently building one that is exactly the same shape and want to install that waterfall. How do you build the waterfall into the pond? Any information would be helpful. Cant find info any where, thats how i found your vid by typing ubbink waterfall in you tube.

    Good job buddy!!!

    I ensure that the pond is 90% filled with water then mortar the capping stones over the overlapped liner. I cut the liner first so that you can’t see it on the outside edge of the wall and overlaps half way into the top of the wall. If there is a small cavity in the wall between the blocks and the stone, the liner is often tucked in there prior to cementing on the capping stones.
    Thanks for watching.

    Beautiful build, I’m envious! I have a question about the liner installation. How do you attach the capstones to the top of the wall with the liner under them? Can you mortar the capstones to the liner or is it just wedged underneath? I’m building a pond very similar to this one but am using brick. That’s the one bit I can’t figure from all the videos onlin

    The pipe runs up the corner of the pond on the inside, and goes under the capping, down the inside of the wall and under the lawn to the filters.

  24. thorspad

    hi, great pond etc.
    i am thinking of building a similar sized one, not sure to go for liner or concrete though. i did not see on vid how you sorted pipe work from inside the liner, can you please explain. many thanks.
