SEMI-FORMAL POOL

This raised pond design lifts the water closer to the eye, and provides a wide edge for additional seating. A tile spout creates a gentle splash, and plants are raised to the appropriate depth on pillar stands. Concealed lighting extends the use of this garden into the evening. The extra pond depth suits koi, and the filtration system is hidden remotely within a plant border.

The pond is sealed with a tailored rubber liner, the top edge concealed under a layer of tough Forest sandstone.

CANAL POND

We adapted the landscape architect’s design for this impressive Dutch-style ornamental canal, and assisted the customer’s builders with the lining - fabricated into one-piece 60m long.

A neat trim was added to the edge and an automatic top-up system fitted using stored rainwater.

The pond has been stocked with container-grown waterlilies plus a selection of marginal plants at each end for decoration, and to give cover to wildlife.

KOI POND

A focal point of a complete garden makeover, this state of the art koi pond (30,000 litres/6,500 gallons) is over two metres deep.

Cotswold walling matches the rest of the property and the wide sandstone coping gives an ideal seating area to view the koi. The stainless steel cascade and semi-formal outline are softened by marginals and waterlilies which have been carefully protected from the attentions of the fish.

The robust structure has a rubber liner sandwiched in concrete, with base and side drains, surface skimming, and an auto-top-up. It is filtered by a remotely sited ‘SuperBead’ unit with fully automatic backwash, and an Oase self-cleaning BitronEco UV unit.

FEATURE PONDS

A chunky cascade and splashing jet fountain provide an immediate point of interest for visitors arriving at the property. The pool margins are now planted with irises and reeds, framing the lilies and shoals of red goldfish.

Construction process ( aquapic)

The pond is waterproofed by a giant, one-piece ‘Firestone’ rubber liner, protected with geotextile felt and concrete.

A RAISED FEATURE POND in a terraced back garden, providing seating for visitors (temporary cushion pads make this more comfortable!). A small beach area attracts visiting birds and is used by frogs, newts and the occasional toad. Damselflies and dragonflies are frequent summer visitors.

A selection of waterlilies brightens the pond throughout the summer, and unobtrusive lighting extends use of the garden into the evening.
