Planting Plan


Careful selection of plants in and around this clay-lined lake made the very best use of British native varieties. These stabilise the bank, attract wildlife, maintain water quality and add structure and colour.

We recommended silt control measures, and obtained the necessary permissions and health-checks to introduce fish.


We follow guidelines to help prevent the spread of invasive aquatic plants

Waterlilies_colourful waterlilies in a garden pond_3484-101  ( aquapic)


Waterlilies make a big splash in any size of water feature, from a tub to a lake, with their dramatic blooms in a wide range of colours and forms. Once established, the flowers can give a good show from June until September, year on year. As specialists, we take care in choosing the most appropriate sizes and colours of waterlily to suit each individual project, and plant them to give best results.
