Large Ponds imitating a downland spring

RT Maintenance created a brand new large pond, stocking it with plants and fish for a client in Sussex.

We created 2 new ponds including a stream and 3 waterfalls in 2010.

To imitate a downland spring bursting out of the bank, flowing through a stream and the over waterfalls into two ponds, we used a Heavy duty Firestone butyl liner and a pump which recirculates the water.

Planted with marginal and water plants it soon started to look natural and fit into its surroundings.

Six years on and its home to all sorts of wildlife including frogs and newts!
