The sound of the lapping ocean, the patter of raindrops on a roof or babbling water in a pond; each scene creates a sense of relaxation to transport you to a place of contentment and tranquillity. At MCS Landscaping, we can design ecologically-balanced ponds and swimming ponds that bring the soothing sound of flowing water to your home in Solihull, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth, Balsall Common and throughout Warwickshire
Natural ponds have several advantages that can transform a garden space into an area of intrinsic beauty. They can become the dominant feature of a garden and a place where people can gather to unwind, particularly in the evenings with the addition of well-placed lighting and waterfalls.
Perhaps the most significant benefit of a natural pond is the opportunity it allows for wildlife to thrive. Using native plants will provide sanctuary, food and a breeding ground for an array of vibrant wildlife like dragonflies, frogs and birds.
The construction of swimming ponds within private UK homes is on the increase as they allow people to reconnect with nature in a way that conventional pools do not. The design can mimic the look of a standard swimming pool or be integrated into the landscape for a distinctly rustic look.
A natural swimming pond will require no draining as the plants remove any unnecessary nutrients to inhibit the growth of algae and help filter the water. As the winter approaches, the pond will freeze over ready for use again in the spring and summer, eliminating the hassle and cost associated with draining and filling traditional pools.
If you live in Solihull, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth, Balsall Common and throughout Warwickshire, and would like to know more about how MCS Landscaping can turn your garden into a natural oasis, call us today.
Regardless of whether your desire is for a natural wildlife pond, a swimming pond or a fish pond the first step is to arrange a consultation on site to look at the area where you wish us to create your pond. At this time, we will go through a questionnaire to establish what you want from your pond and the type of style you would like. We will also carry out a survey to allow scaled drawings to be produced and depending on the space we may need to carry out a level survey to understand how we can create something that looks good and fits in with the lie of the land.
We will then come back to you with a build proposal and scope of works for the pond to include a plan drawing and diagrams to show various depths, shelves, and equipment. These will be accompanied by various photos to show the general style of the finished pond, to some extent building a natural pond is an organic process on site, seeing which rock looks good there, which stones will function best when creating a watercourse or waterfall but always based on the design plan and photos.
