    Hi! I love this project! Did you have to cement the pavers, or did you just stack them up? I was thinking of using bigger pavers and not cement them. Would this work? Reason being is, I don't want something permanent at the moment. We are planning on building an in-ground pond down the line. Thank you.

    It's beautiful! What type of paver did you use? The dimension please

    Hi, very nice! I have a raised flower bed in my backyard that was here when I bought the house, that I am considering converting to a koi pond. It appears to be constructed very similar to yours with 4 X 8 X 12 pavers glued together. It is about 3' wide by 15' long and 16" high (4 pavers high). My concern is if it will be strong enough to hold the water. Did you do anything other than glue the pavers together? Do you know of other ponds constructed this way?

      Hi, We used a special glue made for pavers to hold them together and used 45 mil epdm liner inside.
