Ponds

Water in the garden is a magical thing, bringing the landscape to life with movement, light and sound. Ponds are vibrantly alive, whether it's burgeoning waterlilies or the flash of a goldfish, blue dragonflies humming overhead or a bird dropping in for a drink and a splash.

Add a watery dimension to your garden with some of the types of pond you can build from materials found in our garden centre.

Formal ponds in geometric shapes add cool sophistication to any garden. They can be raised or at ground level: add fish and carefully-judged plants to set the scene.

Informal ponds can be any shape you like: you'll find irregularly-shaped rigid liners or butyl liner for your own design in our garden centre. Disguise the edges with plants and cobbles for a natural look.

Water features are ideal for smaller gardens: we stock several designs from bubble fountains and wall- mounted spouts to modern steel cascades.

Wildlife ponds are informal ponds with features to attract more wildlife, such as pebble 'beaches' for easier access, plenty of plants and stone piles for frogs and toads to use as hideyholes.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Paston and Oundle for more information and advice about ponds in the garden.
