Wetlands, Urban ponds and lochs

One of our specialisations is the creation of wetlands and the naturalisation of urban ponds and lochs. We have undertaken this type of project for several local councils around Scotland and the north of England as well as for many private clients. We favour planting and the use of soft engineering techniques to improve water quality, create habitat and increase amenity.

Wetland design and regeneration

Our expert team can design and build wetland areas from scratch.  We are happy to make an initial site visit to look at your location and discuss design and construction options. The environmental benefits of wetlands are endless, but they can also help with regeneration. Often in socially deprived areas, the creation of wetland areas and the naturalisation of urban ponds and other bodies of water, can improve the quality of life for both the local residents and the local wildlife.
