At DU Waterscapes, we educate and inspire people to embrace naturally balanced water-gardening so that they can reconnect with nature for the proven benefits to their mental and physical health. We combine both natural processes and applied sciences to achieve water-gardening excellence by increasing biodiversity and the abundance of native flora and fauna in order to repair, protect and restore habitats throughout the UK.
No moving parts
The Riparian Zone is where the land meets the water and are the most biodiverse biomes on planet Earth. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of land, these are in sharp decline as farmers and builders develop right up to the water's edge. Our stillwater ponds are filled with hydrophilic (water loving) plants to do our bit to repair, protect and restore these habitats, creating homes for our important invertebrates and amphibians.
With no filters or moving parts, this is a simple system that needs little maintenance, however, this is not suitable if you are hoping to keep fish, for these, you will need an Ecosystem pond.
Making a Home for Nature
During the past century nearly 70% of pond ecosystems have been lost from the British countryside. This is why we are so passionate about designing and creating stillwater ponds to enhance any garden space, enticing a huge abundance of wildlife to seek refuge and call your garden space their home. Our stillwater ponds are a cost effective way to create a stunning living feature in your garden that changes daily as the seasons flow through.
