Pond Design Tips

The pleasure...

Few additions to a garden are more spectacular and rewarding than that of a water garden. Nothing quite complements a summer’s afternoon in the garden more than listening to the relaxing sound of a rippling waterfall, watching fish rise gently to take advantage of an unwary insect, or seeing, as if in slow motion, the closing of a lily flower for the night. There is all the fun of planning and design in the early stages and decisions  on position and shape – whether it may have a formal or informal theme. Your pond may be primarily for keeping the stunning koi carp, purely a lily pond, or maybe one that contains a little bit of everything.  

A true family project...

Whether in the planning or in the actual digging, the whole family will often become involved in the construction of a garden pond. A pond can be as simple or as intricate as you wish it to be, from a small water feature taking an afternoon to build, to one taking many weeks. But all ponds have one thing in common — they are one of the few additions to your garden which will improve year by year as they mature, attracting a myriad of wildlife to the garden.
