Take 5… Homes with ponds

Whether man-made or natural, a pond can be a beautiful addition to any garden having a calm and serene effect on its surroundings. It can transform the garden’s atmosphere and provide a relaxing spot to sit and enjoy a summer’s afternoon.

The introduction of an aquatic focal point to your outdoor space also encourages an eco-friendly environment. A small oasis nestled in suburbia can provide a rich habitat for beneficial insects or may become a favourite watering hole for local birds, and you will be rewarded with a front row seat to watch nature at its best.
