About Us
Water Garden Solutions

Water Garden Solutions was established in 1999 originally under the Aquapic Solutions banner

James Allison

James Allison, the principal, has over thirty years experience in the aquatic trade. His passion for ponds and watergardens began in his youth and led on to qualifications in Biology (B.Sc. Hons) and Applied Hydrobiology (M.Sc.). The expertise gained has proved invaluable in dealing with a wide range of water garden projects.

Early years managing one of the UK’s leading aquatic retailers gave him further hands-on experience dealing with water garden equipment, plants and fish.

James lectures widely on topics relating to water gardening and aquatic science. He is an award-winning writer with past experience as a contributor to Practical Fishkeeping Magazine (’86-’07); as editor of the International Waterlily and Water Gardening Society’s Water Garden Journal (’97-’04); and authorship of the book “Water in the Garden”.

Personnel and Scope

James Allison is personally involved in all projects and is assisted by a selected team of independent landscapers and aquatic specialists. Water Garden Solutions also works on projects alongside customers’ own builders/landscapers and designers/architects. Construction work has majored on medium-sized pools, but projects, consultancy and maintenance work are carried out on all sizes of water garden from small pools in town gardens up to small lakes.

Regions covered

The office is based in Cheltenham, on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Water garden project, equipment installation and filtration work is carried out in Gloucestershire and the closer parts of the surrounding counties of Wiltshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Oxfordshire and Avon.

Consultancy work and presentations are undertaken for clients throughout the UK and internationally.
