What We Do
Based in Hertfordshire, Creative Cascades construct high quality ponds and water features with an emphasis on low maintenance through natural filtration. Our ponds are perfect for fish and do not require UV lights or other kit that needs persistent cleaning and replacing.
We use the ecosystem approach developed by Professor Ed Beaulieu at Aquascapes, use the following links for more information:
At the heart of the ecosystem are the natural mechanical and biological methods of water filtration. We isolate our pumps in a chamber in order that expensive equipment is well-protected from animal and plant matter, resulting in lower maintenance, saving time and costs.
We utilitse natural filtration systems to achieve balanced ecosystems and aesthetically breathtaking features, for example:
- We never use concrete in our creations. We use a waterproof, recyclable liner and hide it using a mixture of rocks, plants, pebbles and more to achieve a natural look.
- We use rocks inside the pond to protect the liner and reinforce the stability of the feature. They also make great surfaces for beneficial micro-organisms that clean the water, as well as being aesthetically pleasing.
- We only use energy efficient pumps, equipment and low voltage/LED lighting.
- Our ponds and streams are natural ecosystems which attract frogs, insects, bird and other wildlife life.
Each system is unique. You select the type of rock to be used in the feature and we hand-pick a selection for you.
We are always ready to talk through ideas and plans for a feature. We will then advise you and make recommendations for your feature. Once you are pleased we will arrange a visit in order to give you a more precise quote for your bespoke water feature.
