I wish to stick with the 7 foot tall stuff for reasons.
To make it a bit simpler, I wrote this thread describing making a hugelkultur that is physically just 3 or 4 feet high, but using material right next to the hugelkultur so that by the time you are done, there is a path next to the hugelkultur that is 3 or 4 feet deep - thus making it appear to be a total of 7 feet.

I used restaurant food storage containers (they stack well, and I needed them clear) and a float valve, have it plumbed into the water lines (city water, with excess fluoride.)
Water comes in the top chamber, filters through, comes out the spout. Works VERY well, I have been running it for 7 years or so now.
