Syon house conservatory pond, London.
We built this formal pond for the owner of Syon House in West London.
The pond stands in the Great Conservatory and because of the high temperature is able to sustain the growth of water cannas and tropical waterlilies including the unusual blue flowering varieties.
To guarantee water retention and for a perfect finish the pond had a black GRP (fibreglass) membrane applied to the internal rendered blockwork. The outside is clad in the same Bath Stone that Syon House is built from.
