Ornamental Pond at Fallow Park

  • Jessup Brothers

  • Fallow Park

  • 1,400m2 ornamental pond

Fallow Park is an exclusive housing development on the outskirts of Cannock. The rural setting of the development and close proximity to Hawks Green Nature Reserve influenced the design and installation of shared recreation areas on the site.

A 1,400m2 ornamental pond with green space was designed to enhance the development and provide a habitat for a variety of wildlife.The ground conditions and nature of the finished pond meant that an impermeable membrane would be required to line the pond.

The groundwork contractors contacted Wrekin Products via their preferred distributor to provide a solution. Typically in this situation a specialist team of geomembrane installers would visit the site, place the geomembrane and weld the joints to provide a water tight seal.

However, Wrekin’s Geosynthetics team offered a one piece Greenseal EDPM Geomembrane as the solution, meeting the requirements of the specification whilst providing huge cost savings in installation timescales, plus the material did not require specialist installation machinery.

The liner was protected by our 300g/m2 MultiTrack SNW geotextile protection fleece. The liner was pre-fabricated by our geomembrane partner and delivered to site on a manageable roll for the groundworkers to install. Both the geotextile and liner were installed within 2 hours of commencement as the liner was simply unfurled from its roll and placed in-situ.

The end results speaks for itself and an established ornamental pond is now in place, supporting a wide range of biodiversity and increasing the aesthetic appeal of the development.

Wrekin provided Jessup’s with a technical solution which saved time and cost, enabling us to continue with our works unhindered ensuring we met key milestones of the construction phase. Their on site technical support was invaluable during the installation of the geomembrane.
