Renovated!



Same "Formal" shape but this time the stone used for the waterfalls is more natural as opposed to the cut stone that we used in the last example.





Demolished, lined (to give our 45 year guarantee) and rebuilt by our own Garden Stonemasons, with natural stone (workmanship guarantee 10 years).

Feature cleaned, lighting updated...that's better!

Note the detail in the stonework...it takes years of experience to be able to create something to this standard. Each stone is chosen and then chopped by hand to fit.
All of the cappings too are cut by hand by us in the garden.



Another old, tired pond in need of renovation, in a private garden by the way...!

This time the new pond would be home to a work of art!



And what a "work of art"...



Pond rebuilt, again using specialist walling stone (the same as used in the last example...water is pumped up into the "Jug" to trickle back down via the black larva flow) and the piece safely installed!

We were commissioned, to create this by a building company who were supposed to undertake it the work themselves...shrewd builders, as it's worth over half a million euros, so don't drop it whatever you do!!!



The string lines mark the position of a Formal Rill.
It's pool has yet to be dug on the lower Patio level, to get your bearings for the finished image, note the back fence and the birdfeeders...



Simple and Effective.

All comes with a 25 to 45 year guarantee against leaks, depending on the type of liner that we have to use, which in turn depends on your ground conditions.

No liner, pipes or pumps visible, just beautiful natural stone.

BUT SOME OF YOU MAY THINK THAT ALL OF THIS NATURAL STONE WORK "DON'T COME CHEAP"...well of course it doesn't but then people just don't call us if they want basic, because it's obvious to see the detail and the amount of time consuming workmanship, and expensive stone, that we choose to put into it.

It is possible to save a lot of money by getting your Builder or Landscaper to create something for you...it may not have the art and style that you get from us...but, if all you need is the gentle sound of running water, it doesn't need to be over the top, we understand that, but that's not our market!

So next here's something that quick, easy and cheap something that your local Bob the Builder can do for you...so just imagine sitting in your garden, eyes closed, with the gentle, relaxing sounds of natural falling water...



NOT ONE OF OURS...WELL, YOU'D WANT TO SHUT YOUR EYES WOULDN'T YOU!



This we built as a "Secret Garden", hidden behind Cotswold stone walls.
Here the gentle sounds of moving water are created by just the water pouring out of a small jug.

The pond has a few Koi and some goldfish...so they need clear water. The filters are hidden in a chamber below the paving. Can you see them...of course not, thats attention to detail again!

Using specialist pond building methods none of the pipes are visible as we feel it spoils the effect.
