Ponds, water features & fountainsContact us >
Ponds and water features are key to your garden landscape? For some people, a garden isn’t a garden without water which adds sound, movement, texture, and tranquillity to outdoor settings.
Water features are visually appealing and will add a focal point to any garden. They will work in harmony with other landscaping elements to improve your natural surroundings and your overall sense of wellbeing.
The benefits of ponds and water features
Sounds of nature
If you are a busy worker, the best way to get away from it all is to enjoy the sound of nature and a pond, fountain or water feature will attract nature to your doorstep.
Relaxing on the patio with the sound of water cascading in the background or bubbling over stones will undoubtedly relieve daily stresses and boost positivity.
Your garden doesn’t need to be significant to enjoy the sound of running water. A backyard waterfall will also produce those negative ions, which improve air quality.
More wildlife visitors
With any water feature, you will notice an increase in birds and maybe dragonflies in your garden. This is a great learning opportunity for children or grandchildren and an added topic of conversation when family and friends drop by.
Water features can reduce neighbourhood noise
If you live in a busy neighbourhood, a water feature can drown out the sound of noisy vehicles and neighbourly chatter, helping to promote relaxation and creating a more private and peaceful environment.
Low maintenance water features
Water features don’t necessarily need a pond. Simple wall fountains or those with sculptured figurines and water bowls can be low maintenance as their water recirculates within the system. These features are great for families with young children as they pose less of a safety risk.
Outdoor water features for residential or commercial
We can design water features for any garden or outdoor area. Whether you are looking for one to enhance an outdoor restaurant or office area or would like a tranquil space to relax with family and friends, our professional team can design and build from your ideas or will create from a brief. Let’s talk about what you would like, how it will improve your landscape, choice of materials and plants.
No garden is too small for a water feature. It is incredible how you can use what seems like wasted space into a beautiful focal point.
On the other hand, if you have a large garden and want to landscape this into different areas and add a fishpond or series of ponds to attract wildlife, we can come up with some fantastic designs to make you the envy of your neighbours.
Lighting your water feature
Lighting a water feature can make all the difference, and there are many different types of lights and techniques to create spectacular visual interest. When we design water features, we look at the angles of the lights, colouring, their positioning, and easy access for cleaning and maintenance.
Uplights, submersible lights and spotlights will all add different dimensions, and careful choice of lighting needs to be considered so as not to overwhelm your feature.
