Wildlife Pond and Stream Garden

  • Converting an inaccessible sloping bank into a feature

    Converting an inaccessible sloping bank into a feature
    This Buckinghamshire garden was designed to make the most out of an inaccessible sloping bank that ran from the house to the road. The brief was to include a wildlife friendly garden with a stream and pond, with the whole garden being able to be viewed from a new deck.

  • Deck area brings new views into the garden

    The pond was positioned at the bottom of the garden but could be viewed from the new deck as the balustrade was made from toughened glass. The toughened glass was held within oak posts and an oak handrail

  • Scented and colourful planting for wildlife

    The Scented and colourful planting was used to attract wildlife into the garden throughout the year. Evergreen ground cover planting along with small dry stone walls was also used to retain the slope.

  • Pathways link all areas of the garden

    A path constructed using binding gravel and edged with stone was built to link the steps that lead to the deck with the gate that leads to the driveway.

  • Waterfall leading into the pond

    The stream was built so that it ran from a waterfall at the top of the garden across the width of the garden finishing at the pond.
