Ponds, Lakes & Water Gardens

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

Feature pond construction
Feature pond design

We design, build and restore all the elements that combine to create an interesting feature pond. The art is in building a coherent combination and integrating that combination into the surrounding landscape.

Feature pond - a definition:

A portmanteau description of a design type (style) of pond combined with one or more specified elements such as; a raised pond with lilies and fountain; wildlife pond with jetty; natural pond with boathouse and island.Steel water with willow

A couple of tips:-

Never (well, almost never) place a fountain and a waterfall or cascade in the same view. Too confusing - water going both up and down!

"Less is more." Not a bad place to start when considering a feature pond of any size.


Maintenance of feature ponds is simply that maintenance required by the individual elements combining to create the feature pond.
