Wildlife Ponds

A pond is arguably the best thing you can do to encourage wildlife to your wild space, and the wildlife value and interest will increase literally hours after we fill the pond with water. Ponds of all sizes attract insects, birds and bats, and provide a breeding ground for amphibians such as the iconic Jersey toad and palmate newt.

The creation and maintenance of wildlife ponds and waterfalls is an ever growing area for us, often with wildlife-focused surrounding planting.

Our ponds are made to be a beautiful focal point and interest feature on your land. We have techniques to blend them naturally with the surrounding land or we can make them more of a feature including dry stone wall edging, bridges, pontoons, waterfalls etc. 

Ponds (like all habitats) do need some ongoing management and maintenance, and it is important to consider this when planning a pond. Our team can do regular visits to help care for your pond and increase the wildlife value of it, and do targeted and effective removal of invasive species.

Wildlife Gardens 

Wildlife gardens are often designed alongside ponds, with native and wildlife enhancing plants to maximise the wildlife potential in your space. Many also feature attractive natural landscaping, like sleeper beds, footpaths and natural fencing or native hedgerows.


I would thoroughly recommend Nurture Ecology for their professional and knowledgeable approach. We have found them to be very reliable and friendly, and they have a sensitive approach to land management whilst still getting great results
