DIY garden projects How to build a Raised Formal Pool It is very simple to construct, however it may be necessary for you to get some professional assistance in cutting the timber sleepers. The pond is a simple rectangle measuring roughly 8x4 and about 12 deep. I have used sleepers as they provide an instant wall. However if you possess simple bricklaying skills then the side walls can be constructed form brick or concrete block, thus there is no limit to the size of your pond. Materials you will need Pond liner (amount depends on size of pond) Fabric pond insulation 3 x Railway sleepers 8 x 8 Coach bolts or Heavy duty L brackets Sand Timber or slabs for coping Rake Spirit level Lump hammer Short length of PVC - 1 pipe to provide an overflow. Step by step Instructions - Step 1 Step 1 Once you have chosen the site for your pond, roughly level the site with a rake. A few shovelfulls of stonedust or coarse sand can be added to the site to ensure an even base for the sleepers to rest on.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
