Water Gardens and Features
Creating a water garden or feature in your garden requires careful thought, is it for wildlife, aquatics, or as a focal point with sound, reflections and movement.
Having decided why you require a pond or water garden we can give you advice based on our experience on the correct location, size, shape and depth required as well as carry out the construction.
A small ornamental water garden can take the form of a converted sink or be several meters across but without the correct mix of aquatic plants to provide shelter for fish and insects or to create the balance of oxygen and light it will soon become an area to avoid. Using our knowledge, we can supply the correct plants to use and advise if filtration or pumps are required.
After your water garden has been created it will need annual maintenance to keep the balance correct.
In the early stages this is usually replacing filters and skimming unwanted debris from the pond, as it matures plants will need to be removed and thinned out, silt removed and repair any areas around the feature which could damage it in the future. We offer a full service to create and manage your water garden using our local knowledge and experience.
