Established in 2017, Nice Ponds is a unique, bespoke Pond Design and Installation, Refurbishment and Maintenance company based in Sheffield, covering Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, as well as surrounding areas.
We take great pride in ‘realising our clients’ vision’ – making their dreams come true.
Our approach is to create natural, low maintenance environments, using ecologically sourced materials and, working in collaboration with our clients, enhancing lifestyles through truly beautiful garden make-overs.
We have built award winning show gardens at the NEHS at Harrogate and have achieved the highest level of Certified Contractor status with Aquascape in the US.
We like to think that our Ponds, waterfalls, and water features can adorn ANY garden, large or small (private, public or commercial).
Refurbishment of existing Ponds and our Maintenance service are both increasingly important to our business and vital in sustaining the environments we create.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your project – we love talking Ponds!
Our approach is simple – we replicate nature! We design natural, organic water features that suit and enhance their environments.
If you have an existing Pond or water feature that is in need of some TLC, we can help! When it comes to refurbishment, we don’t do half measures, we want to leave you with a pond or water feature that is going to be fully functional, long lasting and looking great.
Ongoing good practices increase the life expectancy of your pond or water feature. Once we have designed and installed (or Refurbished) your pond, regular maintenance keeps your pond looking its best for your pleasure.
First of all, we are really pleased with Matt’s work. He is both skilled and creative He used stones and logs from our garden to great effect making the pond appear more natural in its setting. His work is very good. Second, we should say that Matt is efficient and responsive. He responded promptly to our first e-contact. He explained what he planned. He came at the agreed and suitable times. We have no hesitation in recommending him and his work.
Hi Matt Just wanted to thank you for your great work on redesigning our Pond. From being a murky, lopsided, untidy and very uninteresting place to sit near you have completely transformed it. It is now clear, level and a very enticing place to sit and enjoy a glass or two of wine. We can now see deep into the pond and see the fish zipping about happily (they asked me to say a big thank you to you). You were correct to advise us that we should have a Pump and Filter. It has made such a difference, amazing us at the speed in which it cleared the pond (just a couple of days).It is also so easy to clean. We are all really happy. Kind regards John and Jenny and the fish.

Matt and Joe, of NicePonds, have constructed this beautiful water feature in my garden. My spec was for something very natural looking with falling water and small pools for the birds and widlife to enjoy. It was also important for me to enjoy the sound of running water when out in my garden. Matt did even better than that and created a delightful, falling stream which I can hear indoors when my windows are open! It is so relaxing to hear and see. As you can see from the photograph, it is perfect, it could be a stream in the peak district. Matt and Joe worked creatively, they grew the proejct on site. Great attention to detail was paid and they left the site spick and span. They are two nice young gentlemen, a pleasure to have around. I would like to say a special thank you to Matt and Joe for a job well done and I highly recommend them.
I was first inspired to have a garden water feature after seeing the 'Yorkshire Garden' at the RHS Chelsea flower show, in particular the flowing brook. This is what Matt delivered, on schedule and on budget. Arriving promptly everyday and working hard on what was one of the hottest weeks of the summer. Lovely plants were added to enhance the natural look. Seeing and listening to the moving water is exactly as I’d hoped. The day Matt finished he cleared up and left everything tidy and returned the following day to check there was no problems with the waterfall. Thank you very much for creating such a wonderful waterfall, I love it. Amanda
Nice Ponds recently gave our very neglected pond a good clean out. Matt worked very hard to ensure a thorough job was done and we are very pleased with the result. He really knew what was best for our pond and even spent extra hours catching a very mischievous fish for us. Matt has been back to check the pond is up and running twice since the clean. Would highly recommend this excellent service. 5 stars.
The children and staff at MerseyDrive Primary school were delighted by the service provided by Nice Ponds. Matt helped transform our pond into a learning resource which we can now use as part of our curriculum. He professionally cleaned out our pond and much to the children’s delight we now have a nice home for the frogs. We would have no hesitation recommending Nice Ponds to other schools.

We chose Nice Ponds after we had looked at the previous work that they had done for other customers and following an initial conversation with Matt it was obvious that he was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. Matt sent us some proposed designs and asked us for our thoughts. From beginning to end, he was keen to make sure that the pond design including all the things that we were looking for, and he didn't disappoint! We've been delighted with the pond and it has made a huge difference to our enjoyment of the garden. We spend far more time out there now. We would absolutely recommend the team at Nice Ponds to our friends and family! Andy and Louise
