Essex Garden Water Feature

Willows Waterscapes are specialists in designing and maintaining ponds in Essex and the surrounding areas

We specialise in creating beautiful and one-off creations across the Essex area with water, rocks, plants, and wood, creating stunning ponds, streams and fountainscapes. We work with mother nature, using rocks and gravel in our water features to ensure the best quality of water, and to make it look as natural as possible.

Willows Waterscapes is a company ran by Callum, who has grown up surrounded by ponds and has always been enchanted by water and nature.

Firstly, he attended Writtle Agricultural College in Essex and studied countryside management. Wetlands, rivers and marshes were on the course, and he loved every moment of it. There was a brook that flowed through the campus and that was where he spent time looking at the invertebrates and various mammals, insects and plants that lived in and around it.

Secondly, fed up with the traditional pond look, Callum wanted to revamp his pond. Having loved the eco-system approach, he created his own and from then on, he was hooked. This spurred him on to becoming a certified Aquascape Contractor.

Moreover, Willows Waterscapes offers numerous variations of pond services to suit all your needs. From eco-system ponds, pondless waterfalls and streams and fountainscapes, to pond maintenance and even swim ponds, you can be sure that we have the capabilities match your requirements.

Our ecosystem ponds are an environmentally friendly, self-sustaining, low maintenance and truly a one of a kind, works of art in your garden. An Ecosystem pond is a pond that works with mother nature to create an environment for the smallest micro-organisms to the largest of fish. It provides food, shelter, and safety for the wildlife in and around it. We aim to create your own little piece of paradise for you. With the beautiful sounds of trickling water attracting countless species of wild life, e.g. birds, butterflies, and dragonfly to name but a few. Water is the lifeblood of the planet after all? no two ecosystem ponds are identical, so why not sit back, relax and watch the fish, plants and wildlife enjoy your pond as much as you do.



Low electrical costs! Almost ZERO maintenance! What is there not to like? Sometimes owning a pond isn’t right for people, whether it’s because of a young family, or the family pet that loves swimming! The answer is? The Pondless Waterfall, all the beauty and sound just without the pond, and still attracts the wildlife into your garden. The only limit to these features is your imagination, whether you want a fast-paced dramatic waterfall to drown out unwanted noise such as road traffic, or a tranquil babbling brook that trickles gently along, or a bit of both its entirely up to you. A Pondless Waterfall can be installed anywhere e.g. front yard, back yard, courtyard, any small or large/huge outdoor space, be the envy of your neighbours. It is a great addition to small and large outdoor spaces



Introducing the new aquascape fountain features, never seen in the United Kingdom, we at JD Landscapes are proud to be market leaders in the North of England, installing the aquascape brand and encouraging people to “live the aquascape lifestyle”.

What is the reason why we are excited about these features? Versatility!!! They are so versatile at bringing in the peaceful sound of running water and can fit in any space of the garden, with or without a pond, they can be standalone features including bubbling urns or self-contained patio fountains incorporated into a “super feature” or any garden pond, it’s up to you. Do you want the clean, sleek contemporary modern style? Or the more natural Style? These features can be anything you wish them to be, in any location you want within your garden/courtyard.



Whether we like it or not, everything from time to time needs maintenance, if you need a one off clean, or would like a more regular schedule, our dedicated team at JD Landscapes will plan a schedule of works that fits in with your pond and your lifestyle. It’s important to keep your pond in tip top condition for the health of your fish and the wildlife. Do you suffer with green water? Or string algae/blanket weed?

We have developed our own biological way of controlling these unsightly problems in a pond. Algae is perfectly natural to find in a pond, and if you don’t have a bit of algae in your pond, then I would be more worried than if you had a lot of it. Contact us and we can chat with you about options of clearing it out for good in an environmentally friendly way or tackle any other problems with your pond, e.g. Leaks, water quality, filtration system etc.
