Westdale Junior School

Wildlife Pond

Mapperley, Nottingham

See the full project gallery and videos below...

Jack was contacted by the school as their wildlife pond was in need of a new life. To transform this space, Jack resized and relined the pond, added cobbles, aquatic plants and more, but involved many reclaimed materials too.  By also creating a seating area, this pond can now be used as an important learning environment for the children. Jack hopes the space encourages them to connect with nature, engages them in conservation and offers them a calming place. As it establishes, the pond will attract a variety of wildlife for the pupils, teachers, visitors and parents to enjoy.

Jack also created a small wildlife bed and a large colourful wildlife border...
