Floating Duck Islands

Our floating duck islands have gone through several evolutions over the past few years and we now have a wide range of options to cater for almost any situation.

Benefits of a Granddad Rob floating island:

  1. Refuge. A safe refuge for water fowl to nest and rest away from predators.
  2. Aesthetically beautiful. An island on an otherwise featureless expanse of water, planted with a wide range of wild flowers adds interest and is pleasing to the eye.
  3. Environment. On each of our modular and bespoke islands sits a mat of native aquatic and marginal plants. Once established the roots grow through the porous matrix to the water below, creating a jungle-like mass of roots under the island. This is a superb natural refuge for all sorts of aquatic invertebrates that in turn provide food all the way up the food chain to feed fish, amphibians and bird life such as herons and kingfishers. The natural planting attracts bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
  4. Water quality. Problems with algae? Our modular and bespoke floating islands support vegetation that provide shade and lock up excess nutrients helping to reduce or limit algal blooms.

Modular Islands

Our modular option combines flexibility and ease of construction with many benefits to water quality and the environment.
Each module comprises of a 2m x 1m porous matrix on top of which sits a coir mat planted with a wide range of native aquatic and marginal plants. The modules simply interlock with each other and can be arranged in many different combinations and orientations to fit in with the shape of your pond or lake (for examples please click the image on the right). The more modules you have the greater the combination of shapes!
Once the vegetation matures the hard angles at the perimeter of these rectangular modules softens to give a more natural shape. To secure the island we supply the appropriate number of liner friendly 20Kg 'mud weights' with chains and remember all our prices include delivery to mainland UK.

Bespoke Floating Island

Don’t like the modular concept? No problem, we can construct a floating island using the same technology as our modular islands but with a more rounded, natural shape. Want a chain of islands? We can do that too. As each bespoke island project is unique please contact us to discuss your needs and we will send you a quote.
