“So we googled how to make a swimming pool from a pond, and swimming ponds came up,” adds Nigel. “We were definitely encouraged by the number of case studies on the Gartenart site. I don’t think either of us had heard of them before...”
“Gartenart’s process was very good, it was well organised and detailed. They surveyed the site properly, and they did some very detailed drawings. We were involved with the things that we wanted to be involved in.
“Ohad and Ashley [the construction team] worked so hard in horrendous weather, they were absolutely brilliant,” says Mandy. “We can’t praise them enough. Actually for that time they were part of the family, it was like having two permanent guests for a couple of months. It was very easy to have conversations with them about anything on the project we wanted to discuss.”
