A neglected pond and waterscape in Durleigh, Somerset, had been taken over by new owners and they had decided that DU Waterscapes were the ones that could restore this area and bring it back to its natural beauty.

When we arrived for our initial consultation we were excited to see that this area had scope to be even better than before and once the clients had arrived at their stage in planning we were brought in to create the bespoke waterscape.

Construction phase, gloves, small stones and foam at the ready.

The whole area was stripped back to the soil and the design was mapped out- a unique stepped shallow pool cascade on one side and a delightful bubbling stream on the other. These would then merge and tumble back into the pond.

The design incorporated the stones already in the garden, reusing the natural materials is always a benefit to the system and nature, giving this feature a touch of Mother Nature’s own design.

Next up, the installation of the filtration system at the beginning of this nearly formed water feature.

The clients were keen to plant their new pond and water feature themselves so we did our final checks, ensuring the system worked to our desired specifications and unveiled the delightful babbling stream and cascades to its excited new owners.
