It's the "MAN DOWN THE ROAD WITH A DIGGER" again...how many times have I heard that. Or "while we had the Builders in we asked them to dig us a pond"...

Well said the client asking me what I could do with this hole that the digger driver told him would hold water without a liner!

Well said I, he clearly hadn't dug out a pond before..."but he had" said the client, "he said he'd dug 100's". "I00's of holes NOT 100's of ponds" said I, not only would this "hole" never hold water, it could never be planted to LOOK natural either.

You see, what you dig is what you are STUCK with, next is a proper hole that can be planted and guaranteed for up to 40 years to hold water, by us!



100% natural, in what was a field somewhere in Northern England!
And next something smaller, perfect for a Town Garden...shut your eyes and listen to the natural sounds of moving water.



Well, as I say, shut your eyes and listen to the sounds of running water...well, you'd want to shut yours eyes wouldn't you!

Done by Landscapers the client said, while they were away on holiday!



Well I've seen a few things in my 30+ years of gardening, but this...well, take a close look.

This is a "NATURAL POND" built to industrial standards!
Basically they've dug a hole, filled it with concrete and then stuck beach cobbles into mortar to give a "NATURAL" effect.

Why would anybody want to do that? Simply a lack of imagination!

Well as you will see, we modified it and took all the cobbles off...



Just doesn't sit right visually does it! But if you like it...LEAVE NOW!!!

Next see it transformed...



I've kept some of the Yorkstone walls as in small doses they serve a purpose, we do Yorkstone walling for ponds, but not on industrial levels...
