Naiad Pond Services
started in 1980 with one man (new career) and a van doing
what the man loved best - messing about with water (still at
prep school even after all these years, I am glad to report). In
those days there were few people specialising in ponds, lakes and water gardens. So few in fact that when Naiad Pond Services
contacted the esteemed gardening magazine (The Garden) published by
the Royal Horticultural Society in order to arrange to advertise
therein, there was no section in the classified advertising
pages for Water Gardening. We are still proud to have opened
that section and to have been, over the intervening years,
pioneers in techniques and skills required to create stunning
water features. We believe we are still in the van on this one.
Since our inception in 1980, we have worked for some wonderful people in some
stunning gardens and, inevitably, we have developed somewhat
from the original business set-up. We are still small (even
microscopic) having evolved into an informal group of associates
who are able to offer a very personal and bespoke set of specialist
pond, lake and water garden
to private clients in Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire.
STOP PRESS - Now available in Somerset for design, consultation
and plantings too - Why? Because one of the team has
semi-retired there - to a property by The Levels, obviously!
Naiad Pond Services still provides an unparalleled
expertise in ponds, lakes and water
gardens from which our clients are able choose those elements, and only those elements, that they require. We do no commercial work. We
absolutely love what we do; we pride ourselves in doing it well and without compromise.
Naiad Pond Services, has worked with and around water
in all its various forms in private gardens and grounds in Surrey,
West Sussex and Hampshire since 1980. We are
occasionally tempted out of our normal stamping ground by an
intriguing, challenging or historically interesting project - but it
really does have to be seriously interesting otherwise the time
spent on the road becomes unbearable (both for us and from a
cost point of view, for you).
design services are available to inform water garden, pond
or lake projects. If you want to find out more, please do not
hesitate to contact us.
and our work
In everything we do, we endeavour to bring the sum of our
accumulated experience to bear.
We rarely have more than one project running at a time because we feel that to do so might adversely affect the level of personal
service we deliver. Work we undertake is carried out in a tidy and
workmanlike manner, always respecting the environment in which
we are working. We are usually booked ahead by around six to
eight months - sometimes longer.
We undertake projects ranging from the miniscule to those lasting several months. We are very aware that we are your guests while we are working on
a project in your garden or grounds. Although we are there to do a job of work, we constantly consider your needs, and will liaise with you on a
daily basis, not only about the progress of the works, but also peripheral issues such as your requirement for quiet at certain
times (BBC radio car parked in the drive!), or any one of the hundreds of ways that having work done can affect your daily routine.
