Koi Pond - Rounding the Top

After elevating the garden, we add another layer of brick to the top of the pond wall. The bricks are layed about 3 inches offset from the inner part of the wall. Mortar is then plaster on covering the bricks to create a round it up. This creates a nice roundish top with an illusion that the wall is thicker than it actual.

An overflow pipe is installed at the deep end too. A 2" diameter pvc pipe with an L joint is used. This serves to channel the extra water from rainfall straight to the drain.

Horng did the first 30% while I finished the rest in another day. Took us 2 sessions. Galvin helped out in mixing the mortar. Thanks dude!
