Lake Construction and Maintenance

willow spiling lake edge beside water meadowsWillowbank Services are water management specialists, offering lake construction by experienced water engineers. We are a UK based company and our water engineers specialise in all aspects of water management including lake construction and maintenance.

For existing ponds and lakes, we are able to offer advice on water quality, leaks, weeds, algae, silt, fish and bank erosion. Please call us if you need any help or fill in our form here.

A good variety of submerged and floating aquatic vegetation will oxygenate the water and keep your lake or pond in good condition, in addition the plants will provide refuges for small crustaceans which will graze on the algae. This will prevent proliferation which creates alga blooms.
