Two ponds linked by a rill, Hampshire.

These two ponds have fitted in well to this sloping garden.  Wild flower turf was used around the ponds and to create a wild flower meadow on the land above the ponds.

This is a sloping site which we were able to use to great effect to create these two linked ponds in Hampshire.

Sandstone slabs were used to create the uniform flow of water over the spillway. Purbeck limestone was used to retain the spillway water and for the wall.

The lower main pond is 7 metres in diameter and houses the pump that supplies water to the top pond and rill.
