The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) Spring APL Networking is called Ponds, Pools and Plants and takes place next week at 4pm on 5 March at Classiflora, Essex.

This seminar will focus on the construction of ponds and natural pools and provide attendees with the opportunity to meet with other landscapers and suppliers.  

The evening event will highlight technical difficulties and potential pitfalls and include a discussion on complementary planting to ponds, pools and hard landscaping and features.

Speakers include APL chairman Mark Gregory from Landform Consultants who will talk about a recent project in Gibraltar, which has a water feature as a key element, highlighting the highs and lows during the construction of the project.

Tim Evans from Gartenart Swimming Ponds will discuss the technical side of natural pools and swimming ponds and explain what he finds often motivates clients wanting a natural pond.

Claudia De Yong from Claudia De Yong Design specialises in the use of water in the garden and will present a guide to constructing ponds, which will explore the different techniques, technology and materials which are available to create the perfect pond.

Janine Pattison from Janine Garden Studios, will share her plant knowledge with a special focus on aquatic plants which thrive in wet conditions.
