I should also mention that the back yard has tons of trees above it and I don't want a water basin that can get dirty. I was hoping to use the river rocks that I currently have.

Concrete wall in the back with your hose from the pump up behind it and your weir stuck between .It would be neat if you did a V shaped one there with a weir on each side .The wall can get a facing of fake rock .Those new retaining wall block that look like rocks would be great .Like in the first you tube video .There are lots of video's on you tube that show you how to do it step by step .

Sissy thank you very much for your comments. I don't know if I want to buy a wall to add to my existing retaining wall? I would have to see what you referring to. We don't have much space back there as I don't want the water to fall out of the area.

Can you please provide links to what you are referring to?

Not sure how much space you have but some of the blocks have retainer pieces on the back or pins you add to holes .The only way you could use the upper wall is to run the tubing visible .Most of the block I refer to are at lowes here .Your wall is brick and if you are adding it to the bottom wall then you would have to dig a little of dirt out .

It is made out of plastic and foam and is sometimes used as skirting under a single wide home .Or you can use the concrete blocks .

You would need concrete screws to anchor them into the motor not the brick
