Constructing a natural pond – Staines

Our latest project is completed – a natural pond lined with stone. We lined the concrete base of the pond with sand and terram to protect the liner. The stone is then carefully stacked onto theĀ  pond liner so no liner is visible. This gives the pond an overall natural look. The reed pump and marginal plants will aid the filtration of the pond. The pond looks great now can’t wait til next summer when it will be stunning!!!
