My first raised sleeper pond build advice appreciated

Postby LeeClaire » Sat Aug 19, 2017 4:30 pm

Hello all Noob alert

I've never built a pond and after deciding to re-design my garden and the ok from the misses, I've decided I want a raised sleeper pond with viewing window and a Gravity fed filter system the pond is going to be a small 3.3m x 1.8m x 1.4m (L x W x D)

I will be relocating my 10ft x 6ft shed and wanting to build my pond were my shed currently resides

Looking at using 2.4m x 200mm x 100mm sleepers from work laid on the high side so 5 sleepers high giving me a depth of 1m and digging the rest out to desired overall depth

Has you can see from pics the raised pond will be at the side of my outhouse and that's were I want to house my filter system and equipment etc

Inside the outhouse I have hot/cold water sink drain and most importantly a electricity feed
