Somebody suggested a cinderblock, I think that might work. My basking area is made from a garden kneeling pad that I cut to size. I will have to find another solution once they get too big for the pad.

Is it too small? If so, they make 3 different sizes of those docks. My 6 year old can comfortably sit on the largest dock with no problems.

Cinder block is really rough on their shells. My base for the basking area in the pond is made from bricks But then it is covered with rounded flat river stones. Drift wood is also a very good choice.
