Natural pond construction, Hampshire.
The owners of this property wanted a pond for swimming as well as ecological diversity, with an outdoor office overhanging the water as a relaxing place to work from.
The site for this pond was flat and open and rather featureless. An ideal location for a large pond. One stipulation was that the client wanted to swim in the pond but didn't want the complexity and expense of a pumped natural swimming pond. To this end we built it deeper than we normally would and expanded the marginal planting beds to accommodate a larger area of aquatic plants which help keep the water clear. The pond has been a great success and to prove the strength of the liner one of the owners horses went for a swim shortly after completion.
