Concrete Pond Ideas

Ideas for creating concrete ponds in formal gardens with a top row of bricks

A lot of the time, ponds and water gardens found in formal gardens and landscapes are this type of concrete pond lined with a row of bricks on the top edge. The hard square edge is a perfect match for the symmetry of the formal garden where streams and waterfalls just don't fit into the designs.

Surrounding this pond is another row of bricks that helps create a planting bed for trailing vegetation and other garden and landscape plants.
