Raised Pond Garden

An ugly site

This new-build bungalow had been left with an unfinished and ugly garden. The retaining walls (on the left of the picture) had no drainage holes, so damp pooled at the base of the wall causing ugly staining and slip hazards. The clients wanted a raised koi carp pond with an unusual waterfall and subtle lighting. We dug drainage holes, a channel and a soakaway and raised the level of the garden. An oak waterfall fell softly into a deep, still pool which looked its best when illuminated by the gentle lights set in the waterfall and the depths of the pond itself.
