Ponds, Lakes & Water Gardens

working with water in Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire since 1980

Landscape design and construction around ponds, lakes, streams, watercourses and water gardens

Prerequisite number one:

Sensitive understanding of how water sits in and enhances the landscape

All too often we see water features that have been superimposed on a landscape just for the sake of having such a feature; the effect is always one of the feature having simply been "plonked" in any old available space - flown in by aliens!

To look stunning, the design for a water feature (whether pond, lake, stream, watercourse or water garden) must both fit the feature "comfortably" within, and enhance, the existing landscape space in which it is placed. It is clearly of utmost importance to consider this requirement at the design stage of a new construction and of any restoration or repair project to ensure that the feature and the surrounding landscape work well together. See the page on Stone and Rock which is just one small illustration of this landscape design challenge.

We design and build landscapes around ponds, lakes and water gardens in Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire.

As a matter of routine, whether we are building from scratch or simply beautifying an existing water feature, our design and construction teams bring to bear their time-served experience and skills to create a "sympathetic" total landscape.
