Portfolio » Pond Re-design and Pond Restoration Bristol

Pond restoration Bristol – Location: Kingswood, Back Garden

Situation – Bristol pond in need of re-design:

  • The dominating garden feature:
  • Mucky old rigid plastic pond
  • Badly made old water feature
  • Outdated concrete heavy pond surround
  • No cover for fish
  • Minimal planting


  • Modernise by re-landscaping pond surrounds
  • Replace old water feature with a more natural stone waterfall
  • Clean pond and service equipment
  • Add plants
  • Use natural materials to enhance the pond area and soften its surroundings
  • Provide cover for the fish.

Solution – How we restored this Bristol pond:

  • Curved lawn edging sets the scene
  • A blend of light aggregate brightens the pond area
  • Mixed larger pebbles give structure
  • Plenty of plants around the pond bring more colour and shape
  • The stone waterfalls bring movement, sound and aeration with a natural effect
  • The spring effect fall mound houses the filter and UV units with a valve to adjust the fall flow
  • The waterfall surround mulched in dark wood chips contrasts to the pond surround in texture and colour
  • Pond is clean and serviced
  • Planting within the pond gives wildlife  cover and provides a natural feel
  • Fish cover is provided by recycled materials


  • A re-designed and restored pond and water feature
  • Surrounding landscaping that has a clean, modern and yet still natural feel
