Ponds aren’t just an attractive feature for your garden: they’re the bridge between terrestrial and aquatic habitats, and extremely important to the survival of countless wildlife species.

Ponds serve as a place for invertebrates, animals and amphibians to eat, rest, breed and, ultimately, play their role in maintaining vital ecosystems, and it’s for this reason that we at FiveRivers are dedicated to crafting waterbodies with the wider environment in mind.

Our clients are diverse: from those seeking to create an outdoor oasis for personal pleasure, to businesses committed to aiding conservation, we can work with you to create beautiful ponds and lakes which complement the natural environment. Our services range from design and construction to vegetation removal; de-silting; aquatic and marginal plant installation; pond re-lining; water control structures; and access improvement.

What do pond creation services involve?

Our services cover a range of needs, from the maintenance of ponds and lakes to habitat improvements for species such as great crested newts. We’re also able to create habitats by lining ponds with geosynthetic clay liners, which continue to grow after our work is done, offering a sustainable, flexible and planet-friendly alternative to typical pond liners made out of plastic.
