Dan and his team exceeded our expectations with the beautiful pond they installed. It has transformed a sad tired patio area into a wonderful wildlife friendly space which we never get tired of looking at. The whole team were friendly, helpful and worked very hard to get the project finished quickly and efficiently.

We can’t recommend DU Waterscapes highly enough! They have produced a wonderful eco pond and cascading stream for us. The team were very professional and really cared about every aspect of the work. Dan and the team worked very hard to get everything just right! Thank you very much!

We inherited a deep pond with many fish when we moved to Somerset, and we knew little about care and maintenance. But the problem was it was very dirty and we could rarely see the fish. Dan and his team visited us twice (February and March) to completely drain and clean the pond, change some of the equipment, and offered us helpful advice. Shortly after the second visit, for the first time, we were able to see all the fish and the bottom of the pond, and can now enjoy our pond. An excellent job, a friendly team, and much useful advice. Thank you.

DU Landscapes have done an amazing job creating our eco pond. We are so very pleased with what they have created. They showed a real passion throughout the project and were obviously loving their work and the end result. They have an amazing artistic flare with the natural materials they use and the whole time work with professionalism and care. I can highly recommend their service. Plus meeting Splodge made by our week!

We are over the moon with our cascading stream! Dan was so clever, in tune with our needs and creative in placing the stones and plants to create a natural feature which looks like it has always been there!

We recently moved to a house with a potentially nice, but rather overgrown pond/waterfall. After seeing an example of DU Waterscapes work at Kelways Garden Centre near Langport, we were inspired to contact Dan to create something similar. Needless to say, we are thrilled with the result - a bespoke 5 metre stream with waterfalls and cascades - a very impressive end result with which we are extremely proud. The work only took 3 days to complete, and Dan and his team were extremely knowledgeable and polite - Dan’s artistry and creativity is most impressive.

Dan is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We have been struggling to deal with a pond we inherited from a house move 13 years ago. Dan came today, drained it and cleaned it for probably the first time in 35 years. He is happy to share his immense knowledge and talks passionately about ponds and wetlands. I will definitely be using his services again.

You've got this far and you're reading the reviews so STOP. Pick up the phone, call Dan and get DU Waterscapes booked in to build you a pond. I guarantee you won't regret it. From start to finish, Dan, Josh and Callum worked tirelessly, in all weathers, to provide us with a feature we will treasure for years to come. We really cannot recommend these guys enough.

Excellent service. It was easy to get in touch on the website and I was then promptly contacted by Dan. Dan was in communication with me throughout the process so that I knew the date and time of arrival, which was great. Both Dan and Josh were friendly and professional and did a fantastic job with our garden pond - I felt our pond critters were in safe hands! They also helped with an additional problem which had developed after I'd initially spoken to Dan; he definitely knows his stuff. He also took the time to answer my questions because I know very little about pond maintenance as it was here when we bought the house - now I feel armed with know-how.

We spent some time trying to find a suitable business to help with with our two large natural spring fed ponds at our farm and luckily, we came across Dan at DU Waterscapes. Upon first impressions, we instantly knew that Dan had the enthusiasm for the job by recommending and adding a huge variety of plant life around our ponds to bring them back to life. His knowledge and love for nature is inspiring and we have no doubt that any job big or small, allows Dan's artistic visions to come to life. We plan to fully rejuvenate our ponds and even add a third for recreational use - Holwell Farmhouse can't wait to see the vision that DU Waterscapes can bring to the table, again! Thanks Dan & Team!
