About Us

Water Garden Solutions was established in 1999 originally under the Aquapic Solutions banner.

 James Allison, the principal, has over 30 years experience in the aquatic trade. His passion for ponds and watergardens began in his youth and led on to qualifications in Biology (B.Sc. Hons) and Applied Hydrobiology (M.Sc.)

Time managing one of the UK’s leading aquatic retailers gave him further hands-on experience dealing with water garden equipment, plants and fish.

For over 20 years work has included construction projects, consultancy and equipment servicing on all sizes of water gardens from pools in town gardens up to small lakes. James is personally involved in all projects. Water Garden Solutions frequently works on projects alongside customers’ own builders/landscapers/architects.

James lectures widely on water gardening and related technical topics and is also an award-winning writer with past experience as a contributor to Practical Fishkeeping Magazine (’86-’07); as editor of the International Waterlily and Water Gardening Society’s Water Garden Journal (’97-’04); and as author of the book Water in the Garden.
