Years 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 and is assisted by a selected team of independent landscapers. 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.
The office is based in Cheltenham, on the edge of the Cotswolds.
Regular on-site work is carried out in Gloucestershire and the nearer parts of the surrounding counties of Wiltshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Herefordshire, and Avon.
