Water is an important element in any garden sheme, adding character and helping to create a sense of place more than any other feature. The smallest pond reflects light and if fitted with a simple cascade, brings the benefit of a relaxing sound. Ponds are also a great benefit to widlife. The design and construction of any pond is dependent on the purpose, whether it is intended for swimming, ornamental fish, an aquatic display, or for wildlife. A simple natural pond might be little more than a rain-filled dug-out, lined with an impervious lining material whereas a deep pond, such as a swimpond, is specially designed to contain a large volume of water. We have been asked to build all kinds of water features, for example a Koi fish pool with indoor and outdoor pools and a connecting passage.
