Sleeper Pond, Kings Langley

Category: Pond Construction

This sleeper pond was a simple, but elegant construction. We used a half underground and half raised design with a built-in planting shelf.
The pond was lined with an EPDM liner alongside soft wood sleepers, and capped with decking wood in the same colour. The decking wood was also used to create a bespoke filter house adding to the soft natural look of the garden.
The filter is a pump fed system that is big enough to cope with a large amount of fish, and the pond being in direct sunlight.
By including aquatic plants, we were able to increase shelter for the fish, soften the natural look and are rather pretty in the spring when they flower.
