Wildlife Ponds Construction

Having designed and installed Wildlife Ponds for many years, we know there’s probably no more valuable feature you can add to a garden than a wildlife pond. Apart from creating a home for many pond creatures – including dragonflies, frogs, and toads – insects will love the additional pollen and nectar from the pond plants, anything from bees to birds will visit to drink, and birds and bats will hunt insects over the pond.

Pond features to consider

Other features such as waterfalls, streams, water features, bog gardens, decking, and bridges can all be included. One of our particular skills is to incorporate what might seem like ‘standard’ garden design features in a wild setting to provide a completely fresh, natural aesthetic.

At Wild Ponds our ecological expertise and years of experience will ensure that we create a pond both attractive to you and ideal for wildlife. We will also pass on tips and suggestions that you will be able to draw upon for years to come.

The Process

Design starts with your ideas. We believe you are a vital part of the design process; at all stages we will consult fully with you, and are available to answer any queries you may have.

The initial consultation is free, and normally takes one or two hours. Aims, objectives, and preferred budget are discussed and you can see what we have to offer.

We provide you with an initial design brief, together with a quotation for the installation costs; these will be tailored to your budget. We’ll also put you in touch with previous clients as referees.

Installation takes, well, as long as it takes, depending on the scale and complexity of the project.
Planting flows from the overall concept, location and mix of habitat that you want to create. Open water, emergent plants, damp edges, or bog plants will all usually be used.
Advice comes with the service and is perhaps the most important part of the package. And that advice starts with the free initial consultation.
Aftercare means that we don’t just walk away and leave you to get on with it. Projects almost always need tweaking, adjusting and maintaining – we will always be on hand to enhance your new pond area or to simply maintain the new look you have created.
