    Yes, its the one in the background, the roof is quite an angle, so it's quite high in the middle

    We are about 120 square meters and the price was to dig out 200mm and then lay 100mm or hard core with 80mm of tarmac and then 20mm of resin bound gravel, plus 6 meters of channel drains, quite a job to be honest

    A man of your skills I reckon you could do it yourself. The materials are easily obtained.

    Filter pit and pond look great mate well done.

    Following this thread with interest, especially now you completed the green roof as Im intending on doing the same, but can I ask how you're draining it?

    600 gram fiberglass matting with lots of resin, concealed drainage that goes through the filter room to drain

    Nice one Roy you can't tell you have got a filter there at all

    You'll have a job hiding that one as well as the other one Roy

    Thanks Roy, I couldn't quite make out the drain holes initially. You'll have to post up a link to the company who supplied the turf and materials. Nice job.

    Thanks RS,

    Believe me I'm certainly considering doing it myself, I can even do a training course locally if I wanted, for free, well if I make up a business name and say Im going into installing drives, partly true.

    Digging out the drive isn't a problem, I can drive a mini digger and I can get the spoil taken away for £180 for 16 tonne, hardcore can be delivered for £20 a tonne and then the hard part will be laying the tarmac, the resin wont be to bad but I would need to hire a special mixer, because a normal cement mixer wont do the job, so watch this space it could happen

    Many thanks. Just one more question! I assume from the fact you have the green roof that you've no reason to access any equipment from the top, requiring the roof to come off?

    I only ask as I need to do something very similar but with the drum filter lid lifting up for maintenance, requires the housing to be quite high which Im trying to avoid

    The drainage is basically the same as the inlets in my pond, there are 3 x 2" pressure pipe going through the roof and they all link together using gutter pipes and then go to the same drain as the drum filter, the popes are resin fixed in place and I used strips of fiberglass matting that goes into the pipe and secures it to the roof, then the roof matting is placed over the top and also the excess is pushed into the pipe, so its as watertight as the pond inlets are

    The materials I used for the roof are
    * Edging - This is render bead angle from screwfix, its cheap and has lots of holes in it to let water out, it will be covered in gravel and the cedum will eventually hang over the edge
    * Water retention layer - This is a waterproof membrane used in cellars as a damp course, it came of eBay from Germany, 30 meter roll
    * Filter matting - Garden landscape matting to stop the soil being washed down the drains
    * Growing medium - Garden compost mixed with 5 bags of 10mm gravel

    Access is quite easy, I can get to everything from the top as I have enough room to get my head in, plus the roof has 100mm joists, none of which are above my equipment so that's another 100mm clearance, I have also positioned the doors/access panels so that the drum and bio chamber can come out easily, I have plenty of valves to turn off or bypass most things
