It’s a brave man who sets out to emulate nature’s beauty…but Richard’s up for the challenge, and we are blown away by his recent creation in our garden. Even in the damp November gloom we are drawn outside day and evening (it has underwater lighting) to soak up the sights and sounds of our verdant rocky pond and waterfall. It is so alive and so magical, and already it’s a magnet for our local wildlife. Richard has transformed a bare and barren patch of grass into something soul-nurturing and life-enhancing.
We very much admire Richard’s ability to mould the environment like a sculptor, undeterred by the practicalities of manoeuvering a few tonnes of earth and rocks…he is creative and gifted, with the eye of an artist….and also an epic planner and methodical worker, very ‘on’ the detail. To top it all (we know this sounds grovelly but it’s true!) he is warm, enthusiastic, professional and an excellent communicator. VERY highly recommended.Gerry Curren
A perfectionist and a very knowledgeable guy. Richard did a lovely job on my pond, coming back several times to tweak things to get them just right.

5 ***** review on Trustpilot Want the 'wow' factor in your garden? Look no further. We feel very fortunate to have found Creative Cascades. We weren't entirely sure of what we wanted but Richard was an amazingly safe and creative (it's true!) pair of hands; happy to make suggestions when it was obvious we didn't really have a clue. All we knew was that we wanted to hear the sound of water and have something lovely to look at from our kitchen and patio. He delivered on both and so much more. The work was completed exactly on time and, financially, exactly as per the quote. We now have a beautifully landscaped stream and waterfall which we can enjoy along with much of the local wildlife.
I have to say the work you have done is stunning and I was a little bit blown away that you could make something look that way from nothing. Excellent workTracey @ The Rockery Centre, Bedford
Richard did an exceptional job of cleaning our rather neglected pond and fitting a new pump. He made some great suggestions about a natural filter and about planting and lighting. We will be having him back to do these upgrades.Very professional and would highly recommend.Heather Ellis
Richard has just renovated our waterfall. He was a pleasure to work with; knowledgeable, professional and creative. I'm delighted with the results. Strongly recommended.Carolyn Clarke

We had a rather dull, lifeless area of the garden that has now been transformed by Richard. He has some great ideas and so much enthusiasm and know-how and we now have a stunning stream and waterfall that we (and our dogs) just love! …Julie Wilson
Hi Richard & Lynne
a big thanks for creating our perfect garden, the kids and dog love splashing through the 'mysterious' stream, the planting is so relaxing, we are so glad we went with our instinct to leave this in your capable hands.

Mr Price just left a new 5-star review of Creative Cascades: Recently moved to a 'new' house with large garden and large pond. The pond had been neglected, full of sludge and leaves from a large willow tree. It was in need of lots of attention. Richard Butler (Creative Cascades) did an excellent job, draining, sludge removal and cleaning of filter and pump etc. Pond is now fish friendly and returned to former glory. Excellent work for a fair price, could not recommend more highly.Mr Price, Buntingford
"Thanks so much for the outdoor 'chill-zone', it's totally changed the way we think of our garden, it's now like an outdoor living room and we've become addicted to the blissful sound of water whilst cooking dinner on the oh so convenient firepit, can't thank you enough".The Tanners, Ware
“Richard replaced our existing pond, and plant beds and the difference is chalk and cheese. We now have a pond we want to sit around every day, and it stays much cleaner than our previous pond and the planting really transformed the feel of the entire garden. Many thanks indeed”.The Eldridge family, Broxbourne
“My husband arranged a surprise secret garden with waterfall & seating. Now I wouldn’t be without it, it’s our own little bit of paradise literally on our doorstep, thanks so much for the incredible makeover”.

“Our green slate pondless waterfall has totally transformed the way we use the garden, we love to sit and relax with a glass of wine listening to the trickling water in the background… so restful and the birds love it, it’s like being on holiday”.Mr V Romsy, Ware
“I always wanted something more than an off the shelf water feature, but I didn’t want a pond in view of the maintenance required, so I was over the moon when I discovered Creative Cascades pondless waterfalls. Richard was so enthusiastic and turned a garden space into a magical haven”.Mrs G, Bishops Stortford
