22nd March is World Water Day, held each year to celebrate water and to raise awareness of the 2 billion people living without access to safe water. This year’s theme is Groundwater.

Garden groundwater is immensely valuable, and we all need to ensure we are using it sustainably. Protecting it to minimise its pollution, and storing it over winter for use during the drier months are two crucial steps we can take.

Installing a wildlife pond in your garden will not only offer you tranquillity, and provide a habitat for frogs, toads, newts, dragonflies and many other water loving creatures. But it can also filter groundwater, to help reduce pollution from reaching our rivers and streams.

Based in Surrey, Broadley Aquatics work throughout the South East, specialising in the design, build and maintenance of ponds, natural pools and water gardens. Our concession within Squire’s Badshot Lea features the UK’s largest indoor natural pool, yet we ensure it is only ever topped up using rainwater, collected from the roof and stored for use throughout the year.

We are passionate about the benefits and preservation of water, so get in touch today to understand how a wildlife pond could benefit both you and the environment. We we offer free no obligation quotes for pond design, build and maintenance and we look forward to working with you.
