Simple enough, you might think - dig a hole, line it or make it
waterproof in some other way and add
water. Well ..... yes, and then again (resoundingly) NO!
The pond builder must not only have a decent
and sensible specifications around which to work but must also possess a skill set far exceeding
that of the average landscaper, gardener or general builder to make a success
of the project. In particular, being able to complete the work
without having anything other than an imaginary line to work to -
the water level or levels. This might sound simple but it is probably the
single most difficult concept for non-specialist pond builders to
encompass in their work and understanding of pond construction. As you might expect, loving working with water, having a good
understanding of aquatic ecosystems and, above all, practiced experience add positively to the pond construction.
We have been building ponds since 1980 in Surrey, West Sussex and
Hampshire. Our pond construction teams operate in an area limited by about
forty minutes travel time from Hindhead (postcode GU26). Occasionally we are tempted further afield by an unusual, intriguing
or challenging project.
We do not work in London and only very rarely within the M25 orbital motorway. See an overview of our
pond construction services for more information.
