From wildlife pools to swimming ponds

We design and build ponds – from small garden features up to large scale freshwater pools, where it is even possible to swim. Our designs are based on first principles of water quality making them easy to maintain and sustainable. They are wildlife havens and we plant them up so that they provide the perfect habitat for frogs, newts, sticklebacks and other invertebrates, fish and insects.

Firestone EPDM Liners

Many of the pools we build are lined with Firestone EPDM liners. We are approved installers of these high quality liners and have three trained liner technicians.

Swimming Ponds

We can build beautiful pools for you to sit next to and watch the dragonflies whizz by, or ones you can swim in yourself (yes, even in Scotland!).
