Ponds, Lakes & Water Gardens

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

Pondside and Lakeside woodland management

Safeguarding, improving and/or regenerating woodlands in the vicinity of the ponds and lakes we work on is often part of the project – necessary of itself of course, but also necessary to complete the picture. We undertake these works knowing that woodland management works will only enhance the pond or lake in question.
