Others who have done it this way have had them up for years. Some even skim coat the inside and fill it up, no liner.as much as i love the look of bricks and brick walls and playing with cement and blocks i'd certainly not do things like those pictures. they just don't last very long IMO, they're not well suited for that sort of thing. you can put an inside liner and go above grade a little bit and then put bricks outside as decorative layer, but it should not be considered a permanent or structural force holding wall because the water will expand and contract with freeze/thaw cycle and that always plays havoc with pond edges.
Do you have personal experience with these failures or something?
