Swimming pond, Salisbury.

Swimming pond, Salisbury.

The plan for this large garden near Salisbury was to construct a large swimming pond as part of a major restoration of the house and garden.

At 30 metres long and covering 450 square metres this is a substantial pond. Anything much smaller would not have the same impact that this one has, in this large garden. As it stands it fits well in this location. It looks natural now that it has matured and has a wildflower meadow as a backdrop when viewed from the new summerhouse.

A large summerhouse was built on the side of the pond.

The project has been a great success and is hugely popular during the Summer months.

Here the digger driver accurately excavates the pond margins which will eventually hold the gravel planting/filtration media.

The white protective underlay is installed and the black butyl (EPDM) waterproof membrane is unrolled using the digger prior to installation.

The 600KG liner is unrolled prior to hauling it across the excavation.

The liner is in and the task of accurately fitting it begins.
