Dream homes – Ponds, lakes & water features

Ponds, lakes & water features

When you think of a garden, you’ll no doubt think of flowers and freshly mown lawns, maybe even a vegetable patch. But no truly attractive garden is complete without a water feature. A haven for wildlife, ponds, lakes or a fountain are beneficial to nature as well as attractive to look at.

Water features are always popular at Chelsea Flower Show. Last year, the majority of gardens at Chelsea featured elements of water, including plunge pools, fountains and chutes. In anticipation of next month’s show, here we’ve selected the best properties with water features currently on the market with David Burr.

Enjoy feature ponds, streams, a carp lake, and an iconic village duck pond. To find out more about these properties and book a viewing, contact the relevant David Burr office. Or for some garden inspiration simply scroll through the properties below.
