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!

Dan transformed an area of our garden in which nothing really thrived and was a constant planting challenge. He created a lovely gentle stream, trickling down to a small pond. Dan is very creative and takes time to learn what the client wants and then he begins to ‘paint a picture’ in beautiful stone, pebbles and waterfalls. He is extremely professional and considerate and keeps to the agreed budget. I would unreservedly recommend him.

Sue Hawkett, Sherborne, Dorset

We have been absolutely delighted with the work carried out by Daniel Upsher on our small pond. He has transformed our garden and provided us with a major focal point of interest. We particularly liked the stepped type waterfall doubling as a bird bath. We cannot wait until the summer months next year when the pond and surrounding plant features will be at their best. A thoroughly professional project undertaken within the promised figure and timescale. Many thanks indeed.

Dr. Colin Lane, East Huntspill, Somerset

Dan came recommended to us by the local aquatic centre as we wanted a new Koi pond constructed. We had a basic idea of what we wanted but were happy to leave the details of the design to Dan. He has created a wonderful pond and rockery feature for us which is beyond anything we could have imagined - and is a real showcase of Dan’s professional skill and knowledge. It was a challenging project at times, Dan has worked really hard and has been a pleasure to deal with.

Bob & Rose Atkinson, Wells, Somerset

The work was carried out efficiently and on time and has transformed our old garden pond into a magnificent water feature.

Barry Griffiths

Dan, using his experience, successfully rejuvenated my pond which included capturing and holding a large range of fish, creating a new waterfall and drainage, building sustainable margins with a large range of plants. Really improved health and appearance.

Robert Aldrich, Taunton, Somerset

I am extremely pleased with the disappearing waterfall/stream Dan created in my garden. It is a work of art. His attention to detail is excellent as is shown in the quality plants he chose which really enhance the feature. He and his team worked hard taking out and disposing of the original feature.

Jasmine Stephens

Dan and Rick worked really hard. They were both very polite and good fun to have around. Their hard work and attention to detail as they were building this water feature was second to none! We enjoyed watching this project come to fruition and we are soooo very pleased with it. we especially like the water cascade, what a fabulous job athey have done and yes we would definately recomend them. Thank you DU Waterscapes 🙂

Keith Parsons

Unbelievable good fortune to have had DU Waterscapes as the company I asked to relocate an old and leaking wildlife pond. Their understanding of the issues involved is encyclopedic and their work is first rate. The new pond is a thing of beauty and is already being colonised by amphibians on it's first day. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks Dan!

Daniel McCarthy

We are delighted to recommend Daniel Upsher who designed and installed a garden pond for us in Summer 2015. We were impressed both by his diligence and imaginative approach. He took pleasure in his creation, listened patiently to our concerns and wishes and achieved a result which has given us daily pleasure and interest.

John & Christine Wilcox, East Quantoxhead, Somerset

Dan and his team were amazing to work with from start to finish. Inspirational, enthusiastic and highly professional within our school setting. Both the staff and children felt part of their work and we are thrilled with the outcome. Can’t recommend highly enough!

Marie Jarman

From the first point of contact, there was a complete understanding of the leaking pond problem. The urgency was enforced by a remedial visit the following day. I cannot recommend this Professor of Ponds highly enough.

Barri Hitchin

Would recommend any wanting a water feature. Friendly, honest and couldn’t fault his work. Did a fanatic job on my old worn down pond need some tlc. The fish and me are very happy. Should be what I need to do for cleaning the filter out and always help if have questions later on down the line.

Ash Coles

When we moved to our current address we inherited a fish pond and had no knowledge of the best way for maintaining this feature. Daniel visited and advised on all aspects of maintaining the pond and now regularly visits to service and maintain.

Richard Lindner

We are very pleased with the way that the work on our pond (removal of slabs, old liner and underlay, and their replacement was carried out, with the minimum of disruption and mess.

We will definitely recommend DU Waterscapes in the future.

John Bebbington

Dan has been excellent in creating a wonderful pond/brook from a somewhat very sad existing pond filled with blanket weed. He was very professional and informative through the whole process. A pleasure to watch the work of the transformation unfold.

Liz Coggins

Very impressed by what Dan has done to recover a silted up and overgrown pond and turn it into an attractive wild-life pond. He's very knowledgeable and thoughtful, and good at overcoming practical difficulties on our really rather tricky site. It's early days for the new plant life, but I can't fault his work on the pond itself. Pleased to recommend him.
