curtain cascade waterfall and submersible pump ( aquapic)


Moving water adds life to any garden. From the grand scale of the eye-catching curtain waterfall (above), to simpler gentle cascades and waterspouts. Soothing splashes and reflective ripples enhance the sights and sounds of water.

We have dealt with all sizes of feature from roaring cascades to winding streams, and pumps to suit filters, fountains and small water-features.

We will specify the best pumps for each job, bearing in mind pump capabilities, running costs, overall budget, and ease of long-term maintenance.

pond filter with screen and compact submersible filter


The ideal pond is clear and lucid, with crisp reflections and transparent depth. With careful siting, design and planting, many pools can achieve this appearance for much of the year with only routine maintenance.

In more challenging situations, especially if there are greater stocks of fish, we will specify an appropriate filter system to ensure clean and healthy water.

The larger model shown above is for medium-large ponds and can be sited some distance from the pond if that helps to conceal it. It has an automated screen to strain large solids from the water, so reducing the frequency of cleaning for the main biological filter media.

The smaller model shown is an unobtrusive, submersible, all-in-one unit for use in the smallest water features. Various other units are available for ponds of intermediate size.

On specialist koi ponds where the highest quality water is required we can specify appropriate sieve units, bead-filters, drum screen, and/or moving-media filter units to suit. We recommend ancillary equipment too, such as UV units for green water control, surface skimmers for sparkling reflections, air-pumps for additional aeration and circulation, and cartridge filtration of top-up water to remove chlorine.

koi pond with plant filter bed for clear water ( aquapic)


On the largest ponds we specialise in the design of natural plant-filter beds. One was fitted to the 130,000 litre pond above during refurbishment, and it overcame the previous cloudy water problems as well as improving the water quality for the substantial collection of koi.

Very large ponds are often more complicated to treat with ‘off the shelf’ filter units. Instead, we can design filter beds carefully matched to each pond, and use a combination of specialist aggregates and flow rates, sediment removal facilities, and selected water plants to purify the water and give reliable long-term results with low maintenance. We supplement with UV units where appropriate.
