The client was clear on the overall concept and various inclusions. The pond itself needed to be a good size – 3m x 2m in this case, and around 1m deep.

The Main Features of a Turtle Pond

The pond needed to also have natural plant filtration, as well as a filter area, accessible via a decking housed at the back.

A basking area, accessible via a ramp leading out of the water, is also essential for the turtle, so they can swim and bask throughout the day.

As turtle will eat just about anything, plants were to be included, but in corner planters that the turtle cannot get to.

Nice modern grey tiles were selected to decorate all areas of the pond, including the sides, inside and planter and filter areas. A submersible pump hidden within the filter area powers the water through a planted filtration area, feeding the water feature shelf.

The resulting pond is a wonderful, eye-catching water feature. The planted areas include a mix of water plants and grasses which give some nice colour to the final feature.
