We specialise in the installation of naturalesque Streams with an emphasis on access and safety. By using gravel laid in deep beds, barefoot children can move confidently around the water's edge with buckets and nets. The gravel can be dug or banked up to form dams or massaged into channels allowing the winding water to find it's own path whilst being filtered through the different grades of aggregate.
Water flows are continuously circulated by a heavy duty pump and where appropriate our Streams are linked to existing drainage systems creating extra flow and volume during times of high surface run-off. All our Streams are planted out with marginal planting at intervals along the bank and a variety of native aquatic plants in the stream itself.
Extra services such as water and electricity may need to be included in the installation costs and regular maintenance is recommended for continued long term benefit and enjoyment.
