Water Feature Renovation with real kerb appeal – Pond Renovation
To bring back to life an existing front garden water feature, which included a stream and a small nature pond.
This client had designed and built his front garden water feature over 20 years ago, and unfortunately ill health had prevented him over the last five years of keeping it in tip top condition, and it had got overgrown and tired looking, time for the Pond Stars UK team to come in and complete this water feature renovation.
The Pond Stars UK team came in and carefully removed a number of the existing planting, as these were plants purchased by the client over years visiting places such as Hampton Court Palace, Chelsea Flower Show and Kew Gardens to name just a few.
The old cement and stonework was removed alongside the old pond liner, which had seen better days.
There was an amount of digging out and re-shaping of the existing design, to allow for more of a water flow to the stream and to have a larger and deeper nature pond.
The stream and the pond were relined using EPDM from Gordon Low Products, with a 12,000 PFC and a corresponding pump being the 10,000PP. A mix of Scottish pebbles from MB Wilkes was used to edge the nature pond, creating a beach affect.
To complete this project a new wooden bridge was constructed, which led to the clients front door, and a number of new marginal plants and pond plants were incorporated into the design.
These pond plants were miniature bull rush , Zeus water lily, Purple and yellow iris’s , canna lilly, Papyrus and a Acer.
Pond Stars UK carry out a number of water feature renovation throughout the year, taking care in the existing design to bring it back to its former glory.
