Northamptonshire Pond Services Case Study
A garden pond in Northampton Town Centre had got very tired and very problematic so needed servicing far to much. This was causing the home owner a big headache, when he was at home rather than enjoying a lovely low maintenance water feature. So in the end we recommended one of our Natural Looking Water Features to suit not only his but also his wife’s professional lifestyle.
The situation before we transferred this pond with one of our Northamptonshire pond services was:
Our pond service this time included constructing a beautiful little stream and waterfall with lights.
To give you the background about of this original feature. Before we started offering our Northamptonshire Pond Services. The home owner was forced to employ a local garden designer in northampton to design them a show winning garden design that included a water feature. They came out and did a lovely design but did not give any details on how to build the pond or water feature. At the time the husband wanted to have a go and save some money building the pond and water course himself.
This garden pond was very high maintenance, it was a self built pond with inferior pond construction materials. Our pond services included ripping out the old garden pond totally and then we could start installing a very low maintenance water feature with much better pond product, that functions as it should and it will last much longer with out the level of maintenance. These types of artificial water features can be turned on and off as and when the any pond client would like.
Like I said this local home owner in Northant’s became a DIY pond builder one weekend as so many do (any one can build a pond but all we do the same is dig a hole, its amazing on how many people dig a hole fill it with water and are amazed in a few months the water level starts to drop).
After a short period of time his lifestyle changed and the pond started having problems with pond weed and water loss. He was also now spending a lot more time working overseas, after creating this beloved self built pond which they tried to include a stream as the the couple loved the sound and movement of running water. However over time it became hidden under the overgrown shrubs and caused a lot of maintenance to now someone with a lot less time at home and headaches due to the irregular water loss.
We had been providing a few different pond services to this garden pond before the home owner wanted to invest more money into this project. As real only answer was to change the design and layout of this water feature to something him and his wife could live with long term.
Challenges we faced as Garden Pond Specialists.
The customer called us as they were experiencing many problems with the pond a year or so after it was fitted but did not know were the water was going and why all the weed was growing. So our initial challenge was trying to find the cause of the water loss to carry out a pond repair service. We did patch a few holes during an exploratory drain and clean one of our service we offer to Northamptonshire pond owners on our maintenance route. But we soon discovered the pond had a long stream that flowed back into the pond. This stream never worked properly as it had many low edges and was also leaking water. We had no other option to tear out the old garden pond to start again.
Our pond refurbishment service included.
DRAINING THE POND riddled with duck weed and took out the pond plants and other greenery that was in it. We then proceeded to make good of the wanted aquatic plants. These were overgrown and left to there own devices for too long, the next job was:
PULLED THE BOULDERS, PEBBLES AND COBBLES FROM EDGE that surrounded lined the inside of the water feature and then we removed the liner and made a start digging out the shelves for the waterfall and stream into the bank. Once the ground work was done we:
REPLACED THE OLD POND LINER from a cheap plastic membrane to our stronger rubber pond liner. Then we were able to start rocking in the new waterfall and stream. We always work from the viewing area that most of the time is from inside the home, a kitchen window or lounge window, but always from the best point the customer can see it from most regularly, sometime this is from a patio if the feature is away from the house.
FILL IN OLD WATERFALL/STREAM, we did this by lots of rockery plants and gravel, so the old waterfall looked like a decorative gravel path between the garden plants and hedges.
After our pond refurbishment service.
The once a nightmare of a black and green leaking garden pond, that smelt like old boots and leaked like a sieve. It is now a lavish water feature, in fact a garden centre piece that is now safe for grand children and can be used when ever they wish. Adding both movement and sound to an area where the overgrown weedy pond swamp used to be.
Here is another Waterfall/Stream Water feature we have built.
If you are based in the Midlands. We have a good pond and water feature design consultation which will help you when thinking about have us do any pond building work or if you need help investigating water loss.
