AN  IMPORTANT  DECISION

Choose correctly the first time

Let's face it, if you wanted a conservatory built, you would employ a reputable builder not a mechanic. Or if you were designing a new house, you would hire an architect not an accountant.

So if you would like to have a pond built, seek the help of a firm that specialises in this trade, not a builder or a landscape gardener. 

Throughout the year we are called out by customers that have employed either a builder or landscape gardener to construct a pond. In most cases, they have spent a fortune on something that may look nice on first glance but on closer inspection incorrect materials have been used, walls are not parallel or even level, filter systems are completely miss matched to the type of fish stock and water volume, pipework isn't appropriate or laid correctly, the filter space is too small for a filter to be installed, the list carries on.

It's vital to get it right the first time as in most instances to rectify an issue post build stage is usually a big job and costly which could have been an easy fix at pre-build stage.

Raised

This is a very popular choice using natural stone sides to give an amazing finish to your raised pond.

The stone used is real stone so fantastic for outdoors. It is frost proof and looks even better over time as it starts to weather in.

There are approximately 6 different colours and styles for this stone option.

If stone is not for you, we can render, brick build, sleeper finish or modern wood cladding.

Unless asked not too by the customer, all our raised ponds are built to the highest standards. Plumbing is hidden within the walls and special inlet and outlet connections are also used. Walls are block built via "double skin or 9" with high density blocks. No corners cut here!

Different style edging is available using ideally natural stone.

For a liner we use only the finest possible liners on the market, butyl rubber, liquid rubber or fibre glass. We recommend not spend some money on this part because should your cheap liner need replacing, it will cost a fortune to replace.

We install specialist pumps, filters, UVC sterilisers to all our ponds for outstanding water quality and ease of maintenance for the customer.

All our ponds our levelled using lasers for the ultimate look.

Ornamental

The "ornamental" approach is yet another fantastic pond style to bring in peace and tranquility for any garden.

This type of build is the most versatile by far. You can literally have it in any shape or style you like. 

We can also integrate water falls or other water feature with ease into the ornamental style pond.

Part grass or even full grass edging is becoming very popular aswell however It does need more attention but it looks great.

If grass isn't your thing, we can install natural flat rock edging for a superb finish to your feature pond. All rock edging is cemented securely into place for longevity and to give a solid look and feel.

Unless specified by the customer, we would install a concrete foundation around the entire edge of the pond to provide a stable base for which ever edging you choose and also to help prevent the ground from sinking over time.

We install specialist pumps, filters, UVC sterilisers to all our ponds for outstanding water quality and ease of maintenance for the customer.

All our ponds our levelled using lasers for the ultimate look.

Wildlife

Wildlife ponds are a great way to provide a home to all different types of aquatic animals in your garden.

These are very popular with our customer who does not have electricity in your garden as these can run on mother nature. Unless a very large pond, we recommend to stay away from the fish option as you will need some sort of filter system.

All shapes and sizes are available with this option, we also like to add foundations to the edges here to provide maximum strength.

We can also intergrate water falls or other water features with this option however power supplies will be needed.

To balance the water out, we recommend a good amount of vegetation should be added.

All our ponds our levelled using lasers for the ultimate look.

How we can help

Simply Pondz can design and build your pond from start to finish. From small to large natural ponds or to the more specialist koi pond using only the correct materials, equipment and most importantly the know how to finish the job correctly.

We would only use materials that would provide longevity to your ponds life. There is no point cutting corners here. There is nothing worse than an un-level pond, all our levels are found using lasers.

Equipment is key, you can build the flashiest pond but without the correct kit, the water will go green and in worst cases the water could become unhealthy for your fish. We specialise in filter system selection and installation. We would recommend when selecting your budget, than rather spending more on a fancy water feature, perhaps make a cut back on this to spend more on your filters, you will thank us later.

What other firms may not know is that if designed correctly, you can build a pond to work for you making maintenance a breeze. This would mean that water entry and exit points are strategically placed with suitable water flow to help debris/waste to exit the pond to your filter system just as quick as it entered it.

To finish a pond, it's important to get the edging right. Decent edging fitted properly will give your pond a nice solid look and feel.
