WE LOVE OUR BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES

THEY JUST INSTANTLY SAY SO MUCH…

large and small we do them all!

South Midlands,

HUGE COUNTRY GARDEN RENOVATION

INCLUDING THIS ONCE-BEAUTIFUL SUNKEN GARDEN AND POND…

to get your bearings note the yellow shrub

BELOW…Notting Hill, West London and a

VERY MESSED UP KOI POND

BELOW A SMALLER BEFORE and AFTER…this time

in

THE NEW FOREST HAMPSHIRE

and part of a much larger project,

because we also Design, Build and Plant Gardens too…

HERE BELOW IN OXFORDSHIRE…A HUSBAND’S ATTEMPT

TO GIVE HIS WIFE A “NATURAL” POND…good effort, here is what we changed it to:

 

NEW FOREST (Lymington Hampshire)

AND A BADLY NEGELCTED WOODLAND WILDLIFE POND

FULL OF SLUDGE AND STAGNANT…here we are infilling “dead areas”

of the pond, where the Mosquito’s lived

the rest of the pond was de-sludged and planted.

AND BELOW THE SAME POND TRANSFRORMED

BELOW…

ESSEX…WELL WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THIS!

UNDER THERE SOMEWHERE IS A BRIDGE…AND AN ISLAND!

Next looking back the other way. 

WE CREATED A VIEWING DECK AND WATERFALLS TO KEEP THE WATER FRESH.

RENOVATED THE BRIDGE AND THE ISLAND…

and in the second image you can see the pond is being filled to hide all of the liner.

It was also planted with 100’s of wildlife attracting creatures instead of Mosquito’s

 

NOTE:

YET TO BE FULLY

PICTURES AT VARIOUS STAGES

NEAR AMERSHAM, SOUTH BUCKS…ermm,

well, the client said he had a lot of large Koi, in there somewhere!

CALLS FOR DRASTIC MEASURES, BELOW…

AND NEXT, WE ARE IN SUFFOLK…

apologies for the image quality; this was taken

22 years ago, so yes we are that experienced

++++++
TO GET YOUR BEARING FOR THE TRANSFORMATION,

FROM WHAT WAS A VERY LARGE AND DRIED-UP NATURAL POND,

note the triple trunk of the tree…

NOTE THE TRIPLE TRUNKED TREE…

 

WELCOME TO THE HORRORS AND EYE-SORES DEPARTMENT…I mean really,

just look at that…basically they have dug a hole in the ground, UNPLANTABLE

NOW LOOK AT THE NEXT IMAGE…OUR WORK…

A POND, WILDLIFE OR FISH NEEDS TO BE DUG OUT TO BE ABLE TO PLANT PLANTS,

THAT IS WHAT A WILDLIFE POND IS……BY SOMEBODY

THAT ACTUALLY KNOWS WHAT DEPTH OF WATER A CERTAIN NON-INVASIVE PLANT

NEEDS TO BE ABLE TO “THRIVE”

TOO DEEP AND THEY DIE TOO SHALLOW AND THEY DIE

SO, THAT’S UGLY ABOVE, NEAR HORSHAM SURREY, and then done properly,

and as you can see we created the ledges that should have been created in the first place

BUT, BEAUTIFUL…BELOW IN ESSEX,

FOR THE LOVELY MAD PASSIONATE GARDENER…

“LADY WALKER” (RHS JUDGE)

THIS IS HOW THE EDGES OF A ORNAMENTAL WILDLIFE OR FISH POND SHOULD LOOK…

THIS IS HOW WE PLANT, ALTHOUGH USUALLY NOT AS LUSH AS THIS,

BUT THIS WAS FOR A REAL OLD FASHIONED GARDENER!

Below, in NEWBURY Berkshire,

we were asked to naturalise this concrete Koi Pond!!!

WHAT…YOU WANT US TO PLANT THAT…

OF COURSE WE HAVE WAYS

AND WE EVEN ADDED A STREAM AND EITHER SIDE

YOU CAN SEE HOW WE DISGUISED THE CONCRETE

AND PALANTED NOT JUST HERE BUT ALL AROUND

AND BELOW A HIDEOUS (NON-NATURAL STREAM) BEING RIPPED OUT.

Note, the moral of ALL of these examples is make sure you actually look at previous work

to know what you are likely to get.

All of ours rely on using real natural stone,

most other dig holes and fill with boulders and pebbles, which is much easier to do!

BELOW THIS IS HOW A PROPER “NATURAL STREAM SHOULD LOOK,

OURS, AS YOU WILL SEE, REALLY DO COPY NATURE…

BUT OUR NATURALISTIC METHODS ARE BEYOND 99% OF OUR “COMPETITORS.”

AT THIS POINT SOME OF YOU WILL BE THINKING…oooh that looks expensive, WELL NATURAL STONE IS EXPENSIVE, and it has to be laid in a naturalistic way, which is way more time consuming that tipping a barrowloads of cobbles into a hole! So, look below, compare the difference, and if you think that is natural you are on the wrong website!

And also please note, in these thoughtful times,

consider where glacial boulders and cobbles come from,

all of the stone that we use IS A BI-PRODUCT of natural walling

and would be turned into hardcore if we didn’t use it to make beautiful features,

whereas Glacial Boulders are irreplaceable,

dug out of the ground after laying there for millions of years.

And really if at all they should used sparingly!
