I take it that you will line the pond? otherwise the water will leak through the gaps in the sleepers.
as for joining the sleepers good old brackets will be good enough two bolts per bracket one on the bottom sleeper and bolt on the sleeper above it so 8 bolts per end 4 brackets and 12 per side 6 brackets and you can get 90deg bracjkets for the corners from B&Q and most hardwear shops and the same goes there.
or you could use doweling and drill the sleepers and stack the sleepers over the doweling if you need pics or diagrams PM me and i'll send you some diagrams through e-mail.
