Garden Oasis are the UK's largest retailer of Intalogs garden raised ponds. These easy to assemble wooden raised ponds are easier to maintain than an in-ground pond and with the optional fountains they make a delightful water feature in your garden. With sizes ranging from 25 gallon to 600 gallon, the largest ponds are suitable for Koi. Both square and rectangular pond kits that are available exclusively through Garden Oasis.
You can install our raised ponds in under 20 minutes, and installation instructions are included with every product. There are some guidelines to bear in mind:
Not everyone wants fish in their raised pond - just the sight and sound of water can be so relaxing. But it can be very rewarding watching and caring for your own fish - and children love watching and feeding them.
The key is understanding the needs of fish in raised ponds, so here are some guidelines:
If you want a pond feature, you have two choices - a sunken pond which will require you to spend back breaking hours digging out and disposing of your soil, deciding between flexible PVC or rubber liners; or a prefabricated shape. Remember depth is important if you want to keep large fish, and the pool surface must be even to retain water. Your pond will require maintenance; how much time do you have to spare?
Another consideration is - do you have young children or might grandchildren be on the horizon? For peace of mind you may need to fence around your pond, or you may prefer to add a metal grid which sits just above the water level. A grid will also help to prevent attacks by herons and cats.
If the prospect of digging a great hole in your garden puts you off, why not consider one of the Intalogs Raised Garden Ponds. These are a modern, labour saving way to enjoy water in your garden. They can be fitted together in only 20 minutes, they are supplied with a fitted liner and are available in different sizes to suit your needs. The smaller raised ponds are ideal of installing on a patio and hold enough water to house a few goldfish. For the serious fish lovers, the larger ponds with their ground sumps hold enough water and provide enough depth for mature koi. Whichever size raised pond you choose, you will be able to enjoy the sight and sound of water in your garden whilst attracting wildlife such as birds, insects and frogs.
Purchase an optional pump to provide you with a fountain of water - so pleasant and relaxing to listen to on a summers day.
The Intalogs raised ponds are made of pressure treated timber for a longer life. The interlocking logs simply slot together and if you want to move the raised pond to another part of the garden, or if you are moving house, the ponds can be easily disassembled for easy transportation.
Raised Ponds require very little maintenance, and are easy to clean but here are some tips, most of them essential if you keep fish:
Much of the above applies to ponds in which fish are kept - if your raised pond is used for ornamental purposes only, you can empty all of the water and refill with tap water. You can also use fountain cleaning chemicals that prevent the build up of algae in your pond.
