Water features, swimming pools, ponds and wetlands
There is nothing like the sound of water flowing to enhance the atmosphere of any garden space. The flow of water can be dramatic, peaceful and powerful. We can offer a wide range of custom and conventional waterfeatures and variables include a choice of paving/copings/cladding/cobbling and pots/statues and water spout features (pipes, sleuths, jets, etc) as well as lights.
Water-features are typically not sustainable at all, but with Wetlandpools it comes much closer by creating a biological filtration system using wetland filtration whereby there are no chemicals and no backwashing or UV lights are used. Wetlands are centres of biological remediation that purify water that can even make it safe to drink. Wetland plants are a fine addition to almost any garden and caring for a wetland pool becomes an exercise in gardening more than an exercise in chemistry.
Creative lighting can turn your garden into a night time wonderland or just simply highlight focal points making them more dramatic. We focus on the practical and dramatic visual use of light to illuminate high traffic areas, announce a feature or vista, add gravity to the appearance of your home and aid in security. We work with experienced electricians and where possible look at using low energy usage components (LED's, energy savers, solar powered lights, photo-voltaic systems).
