    The Importance of Ponds

    The single biggest thing you can do to help nature is to add a pond to your garden. Not only will you have created a soon to be flourishing ecosystem home to thousands of different species, but will have added an attractive feature of your garden and a pleasant relaxing spot to sit beside and enjoy.

    Adding any water source to a garden provides benefits to our wildlife. The creation of an attractive and successful pond, however, requires planning and know how. This is because there are a number of important factors to be considered when trying to achieve the ultimate pond.

    Pond Installation

    At Green Robins, we are able to design and create the foundations for a balanced natural ecosystem which will remain in place for years to come with low maintenance needs.

    We select the most suitable species of aquatic plants and materials for the creation of our ponds, ensuring maximum environmental benefits whilst guaranteeing charm and beauty.

    Once established, a well balanced ecosystem should be self sustaining with minimal maintenance required. Algae are a natural organism and in small amounts are beneficial to a pond and its occupants however in larger volumes it needs to be managed. This is why choosing the right plants first of all are very important as they are vital in lowering the rate of algae growth.

    Pond Maintenance

    Dead plant matter will also need to be removed from the pond so this does not enter the water and upset the balance of nutrients within the ecosystem whilst upholding the ponds appearance.

    October is the best month for pond maintenance due to the majority of the ponds inhabitants such as frogs and newts having already left the water to begin preparations for their winter hibernation. This reduces the likelihood of disturbing the freshwater species you are trying to help.

    All of our pond builds include a free pond maintenance visit to ensure its progress.
