Construction & Maintenance


At Essential Ponds we understand the task of maintaining a natural looking pond with beautiful planting, controllable fish stocks and ways to slow the organic waste (silt) build up using SILTEX.

We also aim to deal with these tasks whilst keeping with our ethos of using environmentally friendly products wherever possible.

Essential Ponds has a wealth of experience building and maintaining Natural clay lined ponds and waterscapes, we have shown that these ponds & lakes can be managed to create a sustainable habitat that attract native and visiting wildlife.

All natural ponds however do require regular maintenance and management to control plant growth, bank erosion and control of the organic debris building up on the base of the pond in the way of silt.
