Raised pond ideas
Raised garden pond ideas
This beautiful brick and stone pond design is a fantastic example of how to create a natural and striking feature.
Surrounded by reeds and covered in lilypads, the stepping-stone bridge extends the pond beyond its curve for a stunning focal point.
Another lovely feature is the stone paving that curves around the pond, offering a subtle contrast that helps finish the look nicely.
Raised koi pond ideas
Hidden by tall perennials, this concrete-edged koi pond evokes the feeling of whimsy. It’s proof that you don’t need a grand design to make an impact.
The lip of this pond is ever-so-slightly raised to mark a clear boundary, while the unassuming waterfall serves a dual-purpose: interest and filtration.

Raised fish pond ideas
At first glance, you might not notice the statue staring into the water. Your eye is likely drawn to the reeds and rushes, the surrounding shrubbery, or the perfect symmetry of the brick paving that’s a gift on the eye.
The circular, raised pond itself is dark bricked and finished with uniformed edges. It’s an unassuming design that lets the surrounding scenes take centre stage.
Raised pond waterfall ideas
This stone and concrete pond design sits on a raised garden edge, which is perfect for incorporating a waterfall.
In this instance, the smaller pool that houses the waterfall mirrors the design of the bigger pond, creating a natural gradient that leads the eye nicely.
We love the solar powered lights that no doubt give off a gentle light in the evenings and highlight this fairy pond to full effect.
Raised wooden pond ideas
The clean lines and contemporary aesthetic here is simply stunning.
Everything about this garden adheres to the rule of symmetry. The wooden decking is cut into four equal sections, with three housing ponds and one housing furniture to sit on while admiring said ponds.
There’s also a stone edging outline that gives a clean finish, while the large paving slabs atop the lawn are a perfect decorative feature.
Raised stone pond design
This rustic stone pond is simple yet striking. We love the yellow iris plants that offer a pop of colour against the grey and brown stones, while the circular design remains classic and elegant.
The interest created here is in how the pond intersects with the paving slabs and garden, which suggest the pond was an original feature the property owners wanted to keep.
Thankfully, they’ve made the most of its design, which matches the curved edging of the perennial patch in the background.
Contemporary raised pond
If you’re looking for a modern and contemporary feel, why not incorporate a rectangular marble pond in your garden?
This simple and elegant design intersects with the grey decking and gravel patch for added interest, while the monochrome privacy walls contrast nicely for a slick aesthetic.

Stone and wood raised pond
This garden knows how to make the most of its space. Firstly, the raised stone edge is designed to look as if the pond exploded from the earth, while the little river that runs the length of the garden is a miniature version of any Cotswolds’ stream.
We can’t help but love the decorative wooden bridge, which matches a section of the pond’s edging – likely put there to offer easy access and a nice excuse to sit down and enjoy the view!
