Pond transformation

Refurbishment of large garden pond

The base of pond was reshaped and new planting shelves constructed around the perimeter of the pond.  Due to a spring located outside the pond which flowed in underneath the liner, a drain had to be installed, to take away any excess water during periods of heavy rain.  A pump chamber was also installed so that water could be pumped out from underneath the liner if required. 

Once the drain was installed, the pond substrate was prepared and smoothed off in preparation for laying the under lay and the Firestone 1mm heavy duty liner.  To reduce the risk of spring water lifting the liner due to a flood event (which the site had suffered from in the past), over a hundred concrete slabs were laid on top of a protective underlay (white in the picture) which covered the rubber liner.  A water feature was also constructed at one end of the pond.
