About SI Waterscapes
With Over 40 years experience of keeping fish and building garden ponds SI Waterscapes was set up to work with products from Aquascape Inc.
There is nothing else available for homeowners who want to enjoy and enhance their garden with a beautiful, low maintenance fully functioning pond or water-feature.
Our goal is to provide you with a custom water feature that looks completely natural as if it had been there forever and gives you a piece of paradise to relax and enjoy whilst adding a bit of wow factor.

I am proud to have earned the accolade of becoming a Certified Aquascape Contractor and knowing I have the technical skills to ensure water features are built correctly.

We guarantee all our installations for 12 months – no quibble no questions. We also extend this guarantee on an annual basis for all customers who take out a continuous Maintence package with us.
Spring Maintenance Package from £375
We drain the pond and put the fish in a temporary holding tank while we pressure wash the rocks and stones. We attend to water plants and fertilse waterlilies. We drain and rinse the dirty water, refill, treat with water conditioner. We will service the autodosers and restart.
Treatments and extra planting can also be done at this time at £POA
Autumn Maintenance Package from £375
We check all systems are winter ready and shutdown those that need. We remove any dead plants and trim marginals back. Clean skimmer and waterfalls.
We also supply and place a leaf net which will be left in place while the leaves are falling then removed again in December.
Consultation visit charges £150
We are often asked to visit customers when making first enquiries and usually these meeting are not so productive for the homeowner who is still in the finding out phase.
We find that most questions about waterfeature options can usually be answered on the phone or via email and we have developed a process that allows us to spend as much time as we need to help people narrow down the right design options for their garden and budget before we meet.
This fee is used as a pre-deposit against any work we carry out for you.
The first step is always to send us some photos of the garden so we can see it from all angles.
