Waterfall Pond Builders in Essex

Waterfall Ponds

Waterfalls make a great addition to any pond as they are a low-maintenance feature that instantly enhances your existing pond and outdoor space.

They also serve a practical function by aerating and oxygenating the water, bringing balance back into nature.

With our experience as pond builders in Essex, we can also build them into existing ponds. We also offer pondless waterfall options.

Ponds play a vital part in our ecosystem and they support two-thirds of all freshwater species.

Full Pond Design and Build Services

Our pond design and build services are tailored to suit your garden, landscape, budget, requirements and timescales. 

Every pond construction project starts with an initial consultation where we discuss your ideas, site access and utilities, waterproofing, filtration options, finishing touches and aesthetics.

Following this, we will send a full quotation with design elements, suggested materials and anything else required depending on the project.  We can also provide a complete planting plan, both terrestrial and aquatic, to compliment your pond.

We are firestone and rubber lining approved contractors and a registered dealer for Oase. So we can inspect, advise and supply pumps and filters to match your pond design, ensuring you have the best quality materials for your pond.

We can also install filtration, including traditional box filters, partly submerged pressure filters and bespoke gravel filters.

As your trusted pond builders in Essex, you can rely on us to support you through the entire pond build process, from the initial design of your pond to the build and maintenance.

Pond Construction FAQs

When building a small garden pond, the pond should be at least 60cm deep to allow for plants and fish.

Many small garden ponds built by Essex Aquatics don’t require a pump or filter because we build them with natural filtration systems.

Waterfalls are another excellent way of bringing needed movement and gas exchange. Waterfalls enhance and complement the existing attributes of a pond or lake while also serving a practical function by aerating and oxygenating the water, brining balance back into nature.

Although we are primarily pond builders in Essex, we also cover London and certain areas in Suffolk and Kent.
