WATERFEATURES...WHAT'S NEW...

"HORRORS and EYESORES" by SELF-STYLED "POND EXPERTS", LANDSCAPERS and "THE MAN YOU KNOW WITH A DIGGER". Here's the worst (or best) HORRORS and EYESORES, including some we've rectified...

Chapter Three...How "NATURAL" is that!!!


NOTE THAT THE ABOVE IS NOT ONE OF OURS!!!

WILLIAM the CONCRETER strikes again!!!

See the height of the waterfall lip in relation to the concrete? The lip has been set to a level that even when the bowl was full, you'd still see the concrete above the waterlevel.

Why bother? What's the point...but this to their eye is "natural"!



With matching "natural" stream WOW!!! And just look at all the detail in the beautifully placed rocks

Like to see more...I don't think so! Let's move on quickly.



Here's a lovely hole, lined with concrete...another masterpiece by William the Concreter!

This concrete is so thick it took two of our men two days to break it up...it was 12" thick, and as well as looking awful it still wouldn't hold water?



AHHHHHHHHHHH...this IS real and not a joke/set up, can you believe there are "Pond Builders" out there that think this is acceptable...and as this was taken in 2018 they ARE STILL out there...

However can anybody think that this looks natural...the Designer is the one at fault because this is supposed to be a "beach". But it could never look "natural" because it's too steep. Next we show you what a real "man-made" beach should look like next, there's nothing particularly difficult about it, you just have to dig out the hole correctly, but of course you MUST design the feature correctly in the first place to allow that to happen.

The Pond Builders had no choice but to stick cobbles into mortar because otherwise they would all slip off into the bottom of the pond, thus showing the liner! Elementary!



This is a "man-made" beach...we've used ten different sizes here, Mother Nature of course uses far more than ten sizes, but it's close enough to be convincing.

This another Show Garden built by us, that won The Royal Horticultural Society TUDOR ROSE award which is a Gold Medal plus Best in Show

Note this is not a pond, it is a STREAM which you would expect to have a dry beach on one side...but the modern trend instead of using nice natural rock for the edges of a POND they use tons of Beach Cobbles instead of rock



The "work" of Professional Landscapers again...this time a at well known Garden Show!

This is a huge hole, but take a look at the next images...
