As experienced pond contractors in Hatfield, there are many different types of Ponds available in the UK, listed below are some of the Ponds that we install:
A garden pond is a water feature constructed in a garden or designated landscape, which is normally for aesthetic and design purposes.
Koi ponds are used for holding koi carp, as well as other bigger-sized fish. Koi ponds can be specifically designed to promote the health of Nishikigoi or Japanese Ornamental Carp.
A Wildlife pond is a great option for attracting new wildlife to your garden. If you are interested in wildlife such as amphibians it is more common for them to appear in wildlife ponds rather than the countryside.
A swimming pond is an ornamental body of water which is used for both swimming and aesthetic appeal. The big benefit of swimming ponds is they contain no harmful chemicals, unlike swimming pools.
Ornamental Ponds are usually smaller in size, normally less than 1,000 square feet. They thrive on pristine water quality, and plant growth and are commonly home to ornamental pond fish such as koi and goldfish.
A fish pond is normally a controlled pond or artificial lake that is stocked with fish and can often be used for fish farming, recreational fishing or ornamental purposes.
Our team have decades of experience installing small ponds for both residential and commercial clients, too. No job is too big or too small for us here at The Pond Builders, and we aim to ensure we meet all of our clients needs and requirements when it comes to the small ponds we’re able to design and build.
The cost of a pond is around £2,100 for a small garden pond. For a medium-sized pond you would expect to pay around £3000. For a large luxury garden pond, you would expect to pay around £6000 and finally for koi ponds you can expect to pay around £11,500
There are many factors that can impact the cost of your pond construction, listed below are some of the more common ones:

No matter the pond you have, they all need regular maintenance to prevent them from silting up and turning into a bog garden. We would suggest for a smaller pond they would need a complete overhaul to remove all dirt and debris every five years, while larger ponds on the other hand need thorough cleaning every 10 years.
The cleaning process is pretty straightforward and simple, the first thing we would suggest is you fish out any string algae, treat the water with hydrogen peroxide or barley straw, maintain the pond with aeration, and remove plant debris with a pond vacuum or by pumping out the water.
It is common that leaks in ponds lined with butyl rubber can actually be repaired after draining, cleaning and drying, you can get butyl repair kits from specialist aquatic suppliers.

There are many benefits to have a Pond installed, listed below are some of the most popular ones we would like to highlight:
The obvious reason to install any kind of pond in Hatfield is for the appearance, a garden pond for example will massively transform your garden. It gives you the opportunity to surround the pond with a natural feature which can also enhance the pond as well.
We have found that over the years ponds have been a magnet for wildlife, providing homes, breeding grounds, bathing spots and even watering holes for a wide range of creatures including birds, frogs, toads, newts and many different insects.
Even if you aren’t considering moving property any time soon, it can never hurt to increase the value of your property if you have the money to do so. The pond could also be the statement piece of your property which may attract buyers and we think this will increase the speed of a house sale in the future.
We tell our clients that you should think of a pond as a natural source of stress relief which can be found in their home, you may think you won’t spend a lot of time at your pond, but we assure you that you will end up spending a lot more time then you think.
We are an experienced, professional pond company and carry out a wide variety of services in your area. If you are interested in acquiring our services just simply fill out the contact form and a member of our expert team will be in touch in no time!
“Could not praise The Pond Builders anymore, they turned what was a dull piece of lawn at the end of our garden into a gentle beautiful waterfall. We cannot recommend The Pond Builders even their service for excellent”
“Thank you and your amazing team for such a brilliant job. Our new pond looks magnificent, even better than I envisioned. Such a beautiful centrepiece to our science department”
“Thank you again for a job well done, it has been a real pleasure to work alongside your team to make my ideas come to life”
Even if you are building a small and shallow pond, the excavation of a pond could be classed as an engineering operation which could require planning permission.
Obviously the length of time to install a pond will vary on the size and complexity. A rough timeframe we will give is from 1 day to 2 weeks, but it can obviously be more.
A usual garden pond will be around 46cms or 18 inches deep, however if you are looking for a koi pond or a pond with larger fish, we would advise 90cms or 3 feet.
With all ponds we would recommend regular maintenance to keep the pond clean and fresh, with small ponds we would suggest a complete overhaul to remove dirt and debris every five years, while large ponds need thorough cleaning every 10 years.
