Koi Pond - Brick Wall

Now that the foundation is done, the next step is to build up the wall for the pond. We use bricks and mortar for this purpose. 1 part cement with 3 parts sand. Wire mesh to be layed in between the bricks for every 3 layers too, to strengthen the wall.

The process took about 3 days
