Do you provide free Quotations or Estimates?
Yes, free of charge, we will come to your address and carry out an initial survey which includes taking some photos and then discussing your requirements. 
We calculate our costs based on your specific requirements and prefer not to use an ‘off-the-shelf solution’ or approach to costing While an off-the-shelf solution does provide for a quicker estimating time, it can also lead to extra costs being charged for at the end of the project, as a result of rushing the estimating process and not taking into consideration every aspect and detail of your requirements. Our aim is to always provide our clients with a high-quality ‘bespoke’ experience.
What exactly is a Garden design, and why is it valuable?
A Garden design is a thoughtfully crafted plan of what your space will look like when it’s finished. Not having a plan can be both costly and frustrating. Having a plan lets us help you (our clients) accurately imagine your space before building it and understand the final costs to avoid any surprises.

Prices for a garden design will vary depending on the size of the garden concerned and the requirements involved. 
What are the Benefits of Creating a Garden Pond?
There are many benefits to having a garden pond that extends well beyond creating a natural, relaxing, and picturesque landscape. Ponds are also tremendously beneficial to your local ecosystem. 

Freshwater habitats are an effective step towards garden permaculture, providing nutrients for a vegetable garden, water catchment, and habitat for beneficial insects and amphibians.

Often, your natural landscape will dictate the shape and features of your pond. Follow the contours of the area to create a natural shape. Look for rocks and driftwood and other elements that will cover the material used to line the pond. If you want a waterfall, you need to plan your location accordingly looking for a nicely sloped area. You can also build up using concrete blocks, large rocks, and other materials to create the elevation you need for the waterfall.
Why is it important to regularly clean and maintain a pond?
The maintenance and cleaning of your pond are critical to ensuring a clean and healthy environment for any fish and plants. Your pond will have its own unique ecosystem depending on location and the type of fish and plants you have, and not keeping this ecosystem in top shape can result in the loss of any life in the pond.

To keep your pond healthy and clean, there are a number of tasks that should be completed regularly. Tasks such as cleaning out the filters and pump, cleaning debris out of the pond including leaf debris on the surface and bottom of the pond, cleaning any waterfalls and fountains, and removing and replacing any dead plants.

The plants and fish in your pond will rely on the ecosystem being kept healthy and you can only achieve this through regular cleaning and maintenance.

Depending on the location of your pond, you will need to do a “deep clean” once or twice a year. This will often involve removing everything from the pond including your fish and plants so that the silt and debris build-up can be fully removed from the pond, the pond water-blasted out (if using a plastic pond), plants tidied up and replacing any broken plant pots and pebbles.
