The client was a real fish enthusiast and had been desperate to have a pool in the garden so that he could keep Carp. The team were called in to design, plant and build the garden. A full design was presented and the client chose to initially complete the pool and patio area, with a view to completing the garden design in the mid-term.
The patio was designed to have a designated area to dine, a bespoke bench for seating and a large Carp pond on two levels, to house the fish. The water feature was carefully calculated to ensure that the fish had adequate space and a water pump was included for aeration. Built in reclaimed red and blue bricks, to match the property, it had a water chute between the two levels, a water spout in the top pond and raised planting beds were also included to soften the shapes.
