I am in the process of building an above ground brick garden pond and really need some advice regarding the construction.
1. My pond will be built into a sloping garden. 2. The pond height (ie the brick wall) will be about 300mm above ground at one end, and about 900mm above ground at the other end. 3. It will be kidney shaped so both ends will be curved. 4. The concrete footings are in and are 450mm wide by 150mm deep. 5. The overall length is approx 4m and the width is approx 2.5m.
I was initially thinking of doing a double skinned wall using standard concrete bricks for the inner wall, and facing bricks for the outer wall. However, at the end which is approx 900mm high, I am not sure if this method of construction will be good enough to withstand the water pressure.
