Design at a Distance

We prefer local work where we can easily visit projects. however, following Covid, we have undertaken a number of design projects for customers in other parts of the UK, who we were unable to visit. The customers provided ground plans and photographs, and we supplied detailed annotated plans for their builders with full specifications for equipment and suggested suppliers. The work is supplied at our hourly consultancy rate. We have very limited slots each year for this type of work.

Your plans are very clear and concise... the pond is looking exactly how we would like it to be.


We can often find innovative ways to deal with issues that come up on site, for both new-build and existing features. We have solved many problems, but we can’t work miracles, and if we can’t help, we’ll be up front about that. Correcting major issues is often expensive, and problems can often be avoided, with lower costs, if we can be involved at an early stage in the design process.

We also have lots of useful information in our FAQ section

Contact Us to discuss your project, or to arrange a consultancy visit - on-site where possible.

thank you for your professional advice and supplying the pond items... I fitted the liner and pipe yesterday and it all went very well
