In November 2014, Simply Pondz LTD became member of Checkatrade, since joining we had over 100 customer reviews, averaging 9.9 in our first year as members.

Our most popular service especially in the summer months is pond cleaning. However our pond services vary greatly from pond construction, pond maintenance and servicing, pond re-lining and repairs, full maintenance contracts are also available.

Set up in 2005 by Darren Litherland, Simply Pondz LTD has grown quickly into a successful business by offering our clients an efficient and affordable service.


Our lake management services in Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire are now also available across the UK.

Services include:

Aquatic Weed Control – Cutting & excavating
Silt Removal – Pumping & Dredging
Water Lily Removal & Control - Excavating

Dealing with overgrown vegetation & masses of unwanted silt in large bodies of water can be very time consuming, expensive & a labour intensive task.

Using specialist machinery, we provide simple cost effective solutions to bring your pond or lake back to its former glory leaving minimal damage to banks and in most cases loosing little or no water.

Usually to deal with plant over growth or silt build up, a large excavator would be employed to remove unwanted plants and silt matter. However this process is usually limited to bank work only or as far as the digger arm can reach. This is a huge disadvantage as diggers are extremely heavy which can severely damage surrounding areas. Another problem is that some water bodies are so boggy, a digger simply could not even access it without getting stuck. For this process you would also usually need to drain all water to make it accessible.

Our machinery can tackle these tasks with ease as there is no where we cannot go. These machines are extremely accurate and with its design it has a minimal foot print, so damage to banks and "soft" areas are completely minimised. These machines can get to any part of any waterbody where most diggers this would be an impossible task.

Our lake management services are ideal for:

- Golf Courses
- Fishing ponds & lakes
- Private lakes & ponds
- Reservoirs
- Leisure parks

& many more...

With all the years of experience in installing and selling to our local customers direct, we thought it was only natural to branch out by selling to new customers online across the UK offering the same great prices and most of all an excellent customer service.

We are able to ship nationwide via a courier either on an express next day delivery service (small fee), standard 4 - 7 day (free) or if you live local you can collect yourself. Minimum orders are £50.


Choose correctly the first time

Let's face it, if you wanted a conservatory built, you would employ a reputable builder not a mechanic. Or If you were designing a new house, you would hire an architect not an accountant.

So if you would like to have a pond built, seek the help of a firm that specialises in this trade, not a builder or a landscape gardener. 

Throughout the year we are called out by customers that have employed either a builder or landscape gardener to construct a pond for them. In most cases, they have spent a fortune on something that may look nice on first glance but on closer inspection incorrect materials have been used, walls are not parallel or even level, filter systems are completely miss matched to the type of fish stock and water volume, pipework isn't appropriate or laid correctly, the filter space is too small for a filter to be installed, the list carries on.

It's vital to get it right the first time as in most instances to rectify an issue post build stage is usually a big job and costly which could have been an easy fix at pre-build stage.

How we can help

Simply Pondz LTD can design and build your pond from start to finish. From small to large natural ponds or to the more specialist koi pond using only the correct materials, equipment and most importantly the know how to finish the job correctly.

We would only use materials that would provide longevity to your ponds life. There is no point cutting corners here. There is nothing worse than an un-level pond, all our levels are found using lasers.

Equipment is key, you can build the flashiest pond but without the correct kit, the water will go green and in worst cases the water could become unhealthy for your fish. We specialise in filter system selection and installation. We would recommend when selecting your budget, than rather spending more on a fancy water feature, perhaps make a cut back on this to spend more on your filters, you will thank us later.

What other firms may not know is that if designed correctly, you can build a pond to work for you making maintenance a breeze. This would mean that water entry and exit points are strategically placed with suitable water flow to help debris/waste to exit the pond to your filter system just as quick as it entered it.

To finish a pond, it's important to get the edging right. Decent edging fitted properly will give your pond a nice solid look and feel.


We are regularly asked by new and existing clients whether it is OK to clean your pond in the winter. In fact it is one the best times of year to have this work undertaken.

With cooler water temperatures, the dissolved oxygen levels are high compared to the summer months which levels drop quickly. With these low temperatures your fishes metabolism will be very low which means low harmful waste levels in the pond. 

Majority of the neighbouring trees will have dropped off most of their leaves, your pond plants will have died back which will sit on the bottom and break down causing silt levels too rise.

Even better (especially for the unfiltered pond) once the pond has been cleaned out, without the warm sunshine present the water will stay clearer for longer.

We continue to work all year long, if you would like a free quotation for any type of work listed below, please feel free to contact us on 0800 689 1408.

Full pond drain & clean


"We inherited our fish pond when we moved house, not knowing how to maintain it. The pond water was pea green in colour and so dirty we could hardly see a fish.  It has been completely transformed from a murky mire to an attractive feature.

I have no hesitation in recommending Simply Pondz..."
