I was in a dilemma, as my previous pond pump had packed up (fitted by a different company) and I was very concerned for the lives of my fish. When I left a written message to Pond Works, I received a phone call the same day, then a visit, and a most pleasant and obliging Shaun did a very competent job in rigging up and installing my new pump, and giving advice. He certainly impressed me, and I definitely recommend him and the company as they are experts and very caring.

Installation of complete wildlife pond (from digging to filling) with stone edge Installation of an anthroposophical water feature already on site Two additional water features Replacement of garden pebbles Derek and Shaun were absolutely excellent from start to finish. I explained exactly what I wanted and they delivered above and beyond and better than I had imagined. I had no idea just how much work goes into a pond, but they made it look easy!
Delighted with the wildlife pond, which I have only just planted (pond installed in December, and we’ve had wild weather until March) – however, it’s been a joy to have the water sounds from the anthroposophical Lotus. Derek and Shaun gave me a comprehensive plant list, and I’ve picked my favourites. Now waiting for frogspawn to appear. It’s a pleasure every day.
They have also installed two other water features – understood the effect I was going for and went to great lengths to deliver.
Recommended highly, Derek and Shaun were cheerful, professional, very workmanlike and some days had started work even before I realised they were there …. and due to Covid restrictions I couldn’t even offer them a cup of tea.
Looking forward to seeing you again for annual maintenance check-ups My warmest thanks again.

Removal of old pond and complete renovation.
Our old pond was a dirty, dead puddle of water, devoid of life and in need of a serious overhaul. Pond Works undertook the work, drained the pond, slightly altered the shape and replaced the liner. Wanting a wildlife pond, landscaping and planting was sympathetic to our requirements and the finished article is a joy to behold. The gang were knowledgeable and professional and carried out the work to a high standard. There was no damage to the rest of the garden and disruption was minimal. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.ew pon

We are delighted with our new wildlife pond designed and created by Pond Works. The team of three worked so hard to hand dig our large 3ft ,deep pool and landscape it with large stones and pebbles. Not only this but they had to cart the spoil up a hill and onto the front drive to be taken away. What we thought was going to take two weeks, took only five days with the weather on their side. The pond is beautiful and we are looking forward to planting it up ourselves, something Pond Works offer as a service, but we were itching to do ourselves. Amazingly they left no mess and left our garden untouched bar our lovely new feature. We highly recommend Pond Works. You will be in a queue but it will be worth the wait

Repair or water pump & cleaning/servicing pond. Pond Works have been regularly servicing our pond since they installed it in 2016. The service they provide is superb and Derek & Shaun’s professionalism and attention to detail is excellent. We recently had a problem with the pond pump. I contacted Derek and they arranged a visit within a couple of days of my call. When on site, Shaun very quickly identified the cause of the problem (accidental damage to the cable)and had the pond up and running again in a couple of hours. I would not hesitate in recommending themJ Regulski, Lincolnshire
Thank you again for the work you and your son put in into bringing our existing fish pond back in to use. In particular, having to work through some very challenging weather conditions! The pond is much admired by everyone that sees it and it is a joy to actually see the water from the kitchen windows rather than grey granite edge. I hope I can keep it looking as nice and maintain the plants too!J & C A, Knaith, Lincolnshire
Pond suddenly drained overnight . Very concerned re fish. They came next day and put a temporary 3m tank for my 7 big koi carp. Found the fault and came back the day after to repair. Checked pond and found other smaller holes which were all repaired. They checked my filter and found a broken part and that the uv light was disconnected from electricity by an electrician who came to fix something else. This was the reason for my blanket weed too… so did a thorough job of checking all around pond worked and spotted 2 extra issues. Parts for filter ordered by Pond Works and came back in 3 days to fix. In 3 days of their work pond looks stunning, water staying in and clear, fish happy. Good quality reliable work from a very professional team.R N, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire
They have been looking after my pond for long time I would not go elsewhere I even recommended them to to my friends knowing they would do a great job.GR, Rotherham
My pond looks like new and the planting you did has made such a differencePG, Lincolnshire
The water feature that you designed and built is excellent and now the weather has improved we are really beginning to enjoy it. I am very pleased with the quality of workmanship.M Howling, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire
Excellent from start to finish – thoroughly professional service from the initial visit to inspect our pond (we had recently moved into the house and the pond had emptied – we had no experience of ponds!) to coming out to fix the issue (the pump and filter were in need of replacing). The guys were incredibly knowledgeable and very pleasant to have around, worked incredibly hard and did a fantastic job! Many thanks!Gareth Smith, Lincolnshire
I already had a newly dug out pond, in a brand new garden (new build house) but I wasn’t confident about how best to plant it out into a wildlife friendly and aesthetically pleasing feature. It had some plants in it, but lacked an overall scheme, and wasn’t really thriving. The team came and worked hard to create a wildlife friendly pebble ‘beach’ area within the existing pond, and replanted with more appropriate choices. The water is now clear, and wildlife is already finding the pond, it looks great and I’m sure will get even better as it matures. I was a bit hesitant about using pond works because they are relatively expensive, and not particularly local to me (I’m in Sheffield), but I now feel I was paying for expertise as much as the labour and plants, and they did work hard in hot, hot weather. I think it was money well spent, and with the benefit of hindsight would have bitten the bullet and got them to dig the pond as well. Yes would recommend.L Marris, Sheffield
A big thank you to yourself and the guys for a job well done. Even `she who must be obeyed is impressed!!!Graham Brewin, Dunstan
I think we can manage to look after the reduced pond, very pleasedMr H, Navenby
I didn’t know what to do and was worried that it was a major problem, thank you for sorting it out so quickly.Mr L, Woodall Spa
I didn’t expect you to come immediately thank you for repairing the hoses and filter, will you clear and tidy the pond for us?Mr T, Greetham
That’s the last KOI Pond I have built but you have been greatMr P, Theddlethorpe
We had a faulty pump, Pond Works arrived promptly and carried out the work very efficiently – very pleased. We would recommend Pond Works and use them again.Mr R, Louth
Having suffered with several leaks in my garden pond for several monthsI searched on the internet for companies that carried out this type of work and found Pond Works. They gave me a quote which was acceptable and carried out the works the next day they carried out the works to a great and excellent standard and for the last month I have had no reduction in the water level. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to anybody requiring any type of garden pond works required.Mr B, Cleethorpes
My pond was a mess but Pond Works sorted it out quickly and look after the maintenance from now on.Mrs B, Grimsby
I had a problem with my equipment which was affecting my pond. After testing all the equipment they serviced it and replaced a failed pump. Great job.Mrs S, Sheffield
Our pond really was a mess and the guys visited us to assess the work needed and then did a marvellous job rectifying it, servicing and adding new equipment and setting new plantsMr & Mrs L, Chesterfield
When we had other pond people around to quote us to sort out a leak we did not feel confident that they knew what they were doing and told us it had to be re-lined.
Pond Works identified the problems we had in no time, explained everything, gave us options but advised us on what to do to ensure they tackled all the issues. After taking their advice they were right our pipes leaked and so did our waterfall; not the pond. They made repairs and a full maintenance of the pond and equipment.Mr & Mrs A, Lincoln
Our pond was a mess and very, very overgrown.
Pond Works completely transformed it in a matter of days and a great deal of hard work.Mr & Mrs M, Lincoln
Pond emptied and liner totally cleaned. Pond refilled, new rockery built and new plants positioned.
The work was carried out in a professional manner and I am very happy with the finished pond and planting.Mrs P, Gainsborough
Many thanks for completing the pond work. We are very pleased with the outcome and the finished product. We thank both of you for your professionalism, your patience and friendly attitude.R Smith, Sloothby, Lincolnshire
I never knew how much work went into a pond, it is something that will give me great pleasure.S L, Nottinghamshire
Our old pond suffered from constant green water, leaks and brickwork in disrepair . Derek and his son completely refurbished the pond to create a stunning and natural looking water feature which is both relaxing and enhances our garden. There is no doubt they are highly professional and technically competent who demonstrate a detailed knowledge of pond construction and who provided us with sensible and practical advice on the design, construction and maintenance of the pond. Highly recommend.B Carlyle, Lincoln
Our pond had seen better days and was choc-a-bloc with Mare’s Tail and Horse’s Tail which was choking the water lilies and everything else. We wanted to rescue the fish and enjoy the pond again. Within 2 days of Pond Works arriving, the pond was completely emptied (with fish transferred to a temporary tank on site), expertly cleaned and all holes repaired, refilled, replanted and fish returned to their home. The staff are excellent, hard working, professional and friendly and we can highly recommend them. Many thanks guys – brilliant jobMr & Mrs S H, Sutton on Sea, Lincolnshire
Many thanks for all your hard work. I’m really impressed with the reconstructed pond, especially considering the “bomb-site” that greeted you on the first dayPhil Watson, Lincolnshire
Incredible! In two days my disused, overgrown pond was transformed into a beautiful pond with bubbling water feature and plants. These guys are so hardworking and professional. Would highly recommend.Lynis Bownes, Worksop
Now that you have cleared & repaired the ponds can you maintain them for us?Mr & Mrs S, Louth
I was really worried about the fish thank you for coming so quickly, a great jobMr & Mrs C, Alford
That looks so much betterMr L, Louth
Thank you for your hard work, 15 holes I would not have believed it. It is great to see the KOI pond keeping it’s level, I will recommend you to anyoneMr B, Burgh on Bain
After I started losing fish I didn’t know what to do thank youMr H, Sutton on Sea
Drain & clean pond, make repairs to liner, refill pond. Work carried out withing a few days of contacting Pond Works. Very good, friendly and efficient service by Derek and his son, Shaun.Mr S, Boston
We enjoy looking out of the lounge window at the increased view and the new pond, It is a real transformation. Mark is delighted with the fox den and the stream and we look forward to the grass mix and the water plants growing.Mr & Mrs E, Lincoln
We appreciate all the thought and attention to detail that you and your team have put in to make this project such a success.
After cleaning my pond last year and sorting out my equipment I always call Pond Works when I need anything doing.Mrs R, Rotherham
Our pond is fairly large but looked terrible, dirty, cloudy overgrown and everything around it overgrown, the equipment did not work and we didn’t know what to do. After calling in Pond Works they surveyed the pond and devised a complete revamp of it our waterfall made from a pile of rock and the landscape around it.
What a difference! Everywhere tidy, new plants in a new bank and in the pond and amazing waterfall. It looks so natural and the lighting at night is tremendous. My wife loves itMr & Mrs B, Sheffield
My little pond was not very nice but Pond Works took it apart redesigned it making it bigger, providing the plants and made a stone waterfall. It natural and looks great.Mr & Mrs K, Nottingham
We’re delighted with the wonderful wildlife pond made by Derek and his son Shaun in the garden of our newly built house. The pond site was a difficult one – it had formerly been used as a rubbish dump complete with old bicycles, bits of car and lots of broken glass. Derek and Shaun got rid of all the rubbish and made the site ready for the pond construction.
The pond completely transforms our site. Derek has a great eye and is quickly able to recommend best design. Their use of stone is particularly clever and just looks so natural. They did a planting scheme which will look wonderful. They even provided a long list of plants which will look good around the outside of the pond.
We look forward to sitting next to the pond with a nice glass of wine once the weather warms up!Mr & Mrs W. Bilsby, Lincoln
We always wanted a fish pond and after attempting to make one called in Pond Works who were magnificent. Love it, love it, love it.Mr & Mrs T Nottingham
We are very pleased with our pond.Mr & Mrs H, Lincolnshire
Pond Works have looked after my pond for a few years now and their work has always been brilliant.
Always cheerful, helpful and reliable.Mrs M, Boston, Lincolnshire
