The Importance Of Planning

Here at Ponds by Michael Wheat, we plan, plan, plan, when it comes to our design and install projects.

Without planning, how are you expected to know what your project will look like?

Although it may shock some people, there is a cost for our planning and design service. This is because we put a lot of time and effort in to making sure we can clearly guide you every step of the way and give you the best possible design within the space you have available! It’s an investment for you and a worthy one for the the level of detail and quality of the design.

As part of our Design Plan, you will have pond consultant assigned to your project to guide you along the way. They will be in touch with you regularly from consultancy and surveying until your design is complete. Whether you have any questions or want to make amendments, you can reach them directly.


We also have an artistic and skilled CAD design team. They create 2D technical drawings and 3D renders of the pond which are accurate to scale, and will show you (with a walk through video) exactly how the project will look in your garden. This ensures we leave nothing to chance and that your finished project will be precisely as you envisaged. 

Without planning, not everything would turn out the way we (and you) want. The price estimated might end up being much higher; you may have not enough materials delivered, or the contractor might have too little time to complete your project. We want to ensure that your journey from enquiry to completion is effortless and smooth, and without any form of design process or surveying and project planning, this wouldn’t be possible.
