Public Sector lakes and ponds

Pond and Lake services for the Public Sector, local government, NHS TrustsPublic waterways, lakes and ponds exist all over the United Kingdom and they all need to be maintained to a high standard in order to look attractive and be safe for the general public. Many of these ponds and lakes are found in rural and urban parks and they come in all shapes and sizes, from small ponds created for wildlife to larger expanses of water such as lakes for recreational sports.

Many of these lakes and ponds  hold fish stocks such as carp, roach, tench, pike and bream for angling, whilst smaller ponds are often kept slightly overgrown and more suited to wildlife ponds where Newts and Dragonflies flourish. Surprisingly enough, providing these smaller ponds are well managed and not over disturbed, even in the busiest areas of London it’s possible to observe see many small creatures that habitate these sort of environments that would normally only be seen in more rural locations.

We are regularly involved in the following services within your local communities working alongside local authorities and parish councils;

  • Wildlife pond creation
  • Planting and plant management
  • Aquatic weed management
  • Drainage
  • Pumping and waterfalls
  • Aeration
  • Fountains
  • Silt management
  • Dredging
  • Pond servicing
  • Algae control
  • Filtration, control and treatment
  • Waste removal
  • Stock clearances

We pride ourselves on a professional and safe approach when maintaining public ponds and lakes, and this approach limits the damage and harm caused to the already thriving ecology of these water courses. All our staff are highly trained and use the latest methods and equipment, but still manage to offer a friendly personal service.

We have worked with numerous local councils and parishes and we are often recommended to others on the basis of the work we’ve already undertaken.  We also have a number of case studies available both on this website and ones we can email if required.
