Water Features

The common garden pond is one of the most natural ways of getting a water feature within your garden unless you are fortunate to have a river or stream (that doesn't flood!) at the end of your garden.  If you go for a traditional pond you need to make sure it is in the right location with the correct balance of light and shade. The other factor to consider is children. See our page on Ponds.

 

There are many other options for water features that can be made from subtle natural materials such as granite, slate and timber.  Depending on the actual design of the feature it can be just as impressive in a cottage garden right through to a modern setting.  

 

Stainless steel, and glass features lend themselves to the contemporary gardens and respond well to remote multi-colour lighting installations.

 

When planning a water feature I would always recommend over specking the pump and fitting a flow rate tap as it is better to have too much flow and be able to fine tune it for your requirements.  A well-designed and built water feature can be the real jewel in the crown for any garden.

 

It is also worth considering some form of irrigation system when designing your garden as this will provide you with hassle free watering, especially if you go away during the summer months.

This is a waterfeature we installed.  It was to give an idea of a natural stream at the end of the garden and it flows under the path and from a blade into a pond.
