    Out of interest how are you making all the cement for all these different stages of the build.

    Do you have multiple cement mixers going, or are you getting it delivered on a truck?

    105m3 makes my pond the Koi equivalent of a goldfish bowl!

    For the bottom of the pond it was delivered by two trucks - almost 20m3 is to much for mixing it manualy at once.

    For all the rest it is mixed in medium concrete mixer. One mixer is about two wheel barrows.

    Each stage of pouring concrete takes about 3-6 hrs for 3 people. Depending on the volume needs to be poured. All the concrete goes via delivery pipe, to put it in exact place. Without this it would be much more complicated.

    Hopefully 3-4 rounds left to finish
