A garden pond was worked into the design on this project, right next to the swimming pool.
We excavated the pond using a swing shovel but due to the shape of the pond, there was a lot of hand digging.
Two concrete pad foundations were installed either side of the pond which will carry a small bridge later.
The pond has a layer of sand shaped around it’s entire surface.
Helping to protect the liner against sharp stones that may pierce it.
The liner is installed in sections so it follows all the contours easily.
A huge rubber sheet creates the water proof pond.
The garden pond is filled slowly so we can work in the pond as it fills, smoothing out the creases and compressing it where necessary.
The sheet is trimmed and fixed around the timber decking frame.
Then we can continue working around the pond, installing brick-built columns for the bridge to sit on.
We also install bath stone rocks around the perimeter of the pond.
And we’re now ready to install the bridge.
The bridge will be the main route onto the decking.
And as you can see from this photo, the decking is quite large and houses a swimming pool on the left hand side.
UPM profi decking is used to clad the bridge so it ties in with the main deck.
