Bespoke water features and pond construction, maintenance and cleaning.

If your'e wanting a one of kind water feature or pond designed and built by artists, then you've come to the right place.

We use the ecosystem approach developed by Aquascapes

At the heart of the ecosystem method is utilising mother natures timeless ways of filtering water. Our pumps are isolated such that wildlife cannot get into them, and maintenance is much lower than on a traditional old-school pond which ustilise box filters, UV lights and other equipment.

Ecosystem method

Your'e probably used to seeing typical ponds that rely on old school methods, box filters, UV lights and such like. The ecosystem method (above) is all about treating a body of water like a mountain stream, there should be no dead water zones.

Our ponds and water features use the highest quality materials, from bomb-proof suction hose to British made top quality liner.

Based in Hertfordshire, Creative Cascades are builders of high quality ponds and water features with an emphasis on low maintenance, wildlife friendly systems. Our ponds are perfect for fish and do not require UV lights and other kit that needs constant maintenance, tweaking and cleaning.

Unlike the vast majority of contractors we custom-build natural filtration systems that are unmatched when it comes to keeping water clean.

Our specialism is low maintenance ecosystem ponds & water features.

We use rocks because they protect the liner, hold everything in place, are great surfaces for beneficial micro-organisms that clean the water and also look good. Over time the planting softens the rocky appearance.
