WATERFEATURES...WHAT'S NEW...

Part 1: AFTER DECADES OF CREATING NATURAL and FORMAL PONDS, RILLS and STREAMS based on our Multi Award Winning Gardens, you would expect us to have a HUGE choice for you to pick from, here's 100+...

PART ONE of TEN...120 DIFFERENT PROJECTS! GARDEN & PATIO PONDS. LARGE PADDOCK/FIELD PONDS. FORMAL "RILLS" and "NATURAL STREAMS that look like they have always been there!


Image Ref 1 of 120 images to follow plus 1000 more across our site to inspire you to call us!

Over the decades we have designed and built 1000's of beautiful pond and water features, large and small all across the Uk and overseas too.

Given so much choice we have given each project has a reference number, you will find 120+ in this section alone, which allows you to easily tell us which one(s) that you like. Then we visit, design something original inspired maybe by what you have seen or make a copy of one of our previous examples that you found on our pages.

Also with so much choice, you can then tell us, for example, that you like the rock in 3 and 6 and not the rock used in 55, you prefer the style of 20 and the waterfall of 33 and the planting of 22...so much choice, so much easier!

AND IT'S ALL ALL OUR OWN WORK AND NOT FROM IMAGE LIBRARIES...everything you see has been Designed, Built and Planted using our own IN-HOUSE ONE STOP DESIGN and BUILD SERVICE.

4...a Woodland Wildlife Pond with a mock stream, made, as always, to look like it's always been there, naturally!



5...
And again being Royal Horticultural Society award winning Designers and Landscapers we know how to plant a garden and a pond too! And this too was just a lawn in a corner of a garden



6...This is typical of our version of "Natural Swimming Ponds", as you can see, as with all of our water features, we do not do ORDINARY!

Note...although this for swimming in, being natural water it could also be just a Wildlife Pond with the deck to view the depths

Not that there is anything wrong with high quality ORDINARY, which basically is the same shape as a normal chemical swimming pool but with plants and lovely pure water. Our creations are designed and created to be very naturalistic in shape as well as to look at, and designed to be fun, just look at that waterfall pouring in the filtered water...imagine swimming under that on a hot day.

And as you can see we use a lot of rock (but in most cases no more than we need) to take your eye off the liners and to retain the gravel beds.

Behind the waterfall is a naturally purifying Reed Bed, as is the "Beach" in the foreground, both still have to grow as this is just finished, these are the secondary filtration systems, the first one being the hi-tech German Filters hidden behind the conifers.

Next we show you what this space looked like before...



6A...This is taken from where the waterfall was in the last image and looking back the other way!

What you see here is the clients Gardeners attempt at digging out the hole...well it was a helpful start!

Call the "Designers Direct Line" 07970309165 anytime 7 days a week 0800hrs to 2000hrs

People say "the rock effects that you create are so natural"

Well, yes you cannot buy stone like this from Travis Perkins/CED/Stone Merchants/Garden Centres...all of our stone is sourced direct from the mountains and picked by the same Designer/staff that will be creating your feature.

But even we cannot just find waterfall lips, lying around the quarry as good as we need, like these above and throughout...so, we have to make them, as with these we find a suitable rock, in this case one that is a block 4' x 3' and using old fashioned stonemasonry methods we split the rock to create the perfect flat slithers of stone for our waterfalls...just another part of our unique service...
