Private Client, Wiltshire

Construction and landscaping of ornamental pond

MJ Abbott were awarded the contract to construct an ornamental pond for a private client in rural Wiltshire, to a design drawn up by the client's architect.

The scope of works comprised:

  • Stripping the topsoil over the site area
  • Excavation of the pond site
  • Installation of a wet well and under drainage to prevent the pond liner from floating
  • Installation of the pond liner and underlay, secured using a key trench around the perimeter of the pond
  • Installation of pond overflow pipe
  • Installation of a mains water connection and float valve for topping up the pond
  • Installation of foundations for decking to be installed by others
  • Topsoil replacement to the pond surround and landscaped areas
  • Turfing, grass and wild flower seeding to complete the project.

Our client was very happy with the finished result, which has enhanced his property.
