Two Bristol pond projects: Pond re-line & pond improvements

Koi Pond re-line Bristol, Bradley Stoke:

This Bristol back garden feature/Koi pond was suffering a pond leak, the pond was too shallow, it had a cheap lined waterfall; it was in need of a pond re-design and pond re-line.

After consultation with the client we stripped back the site ready to carry out our pond improvements.

The pond was drained, cleared and then dug out to a deeper more desirable bottom profile. The spoil has been used to create a mound for the new waterfall.

Next we put down a high quality underlay followed by a high grade pond liner. The waterfall footing, base liner and underlay are positioned at the same time. Next the stone waterfall is constructed; in this example to provide a high level of aeration.

The edges have been re-laid with mortar in stone, paviour or decking and have been blended with pebbles and gravel.

A new pond pump and pond filter system have been installed to increase filtration and UV exposure.

The water is treated and the fish are added ready to enjoy their new pond.

The mound has been topped with loam soil, planted with Hosta’s, Acer’s, bulbs and Alpines. It is retained by a log edging.

The client has re-painted the bridge to further the aesthetic of this pond improvement.

Wildlife Pond re-line Bristol, Winterbourne:

This wildlife pond in Bristol was suffering from a pond leak and was in need of a pond re-line and some pond improvements.

First we drained the pond and cleared the site. After some minor re-profiling we positioned new underlay and a new pond liner. The next stage was to reduce and re-pot all the pond plants and put them into place. The loose beach pebbles are then retained by a mortar strip incorporating more pebbles and the old rocks are re-positioned around the higher marginal shelf.

Next the stone paved area to the rear of the pond was lifted before being re-laid on a new sub-base with pointed joints making it a lovely hard standing to sit and view the pond and garden from.

Finally the pond is re-lined and improved and can be filled, treated and left to settle down again.
