Can the pond covers be easily removed?

Access panels can be incorporated or the cover can be hinged so you can easily tend to your pond.  During the final quote you can discuss everything you wish your pond cover to do.  If that means we have to create something new, then we welcome it.

Shaun McPherson made me a beautiful pond cover which was needed to ensure i could child-mind from our new house.
We had to ask Shaun to make it by a set date , and he did just that .
We were and are extremely happy with all aspects of the service and goods he has made for us . Our beautiful pond cover is not only safe but a piece of art too.
My husband and i would strongly recommend Shaun for any bespoke pond covers , and we would be happy for him to show ours masterpiece to prospective customers .

Dear Shaun,

As we have had a few weeks to appreciate your work, we would like to say how happy we are with our pond cover. It protects our fish from the herons which previously ate them and adds artistic flair to our garden. Your attention to detail fulfilled the brief exactly and the workmanship was excellent. Our neighbour was so impressed with our pond cover that he immediately commissioned one for his own pond and he is thrilled to bits with it.

Do you only fabricate pond covers?

No.   We can create anything that is functional and artistic, from sculpture to fire guards, and enjoy nothing more than a new challenge. 

What materials do you use?

Most of our pond covers are made using mild steel bright bar and copper wash welded mesh.  If specially requested, stainless steel can be used.

What precautions are in place to prevent corrosion?

Customers can choose from 3 methods;
If you would like the product powder coated in a black finish, the painters will apply a zinc layer below the powder coat and will the finish it with a nylon covering.
Your product can be galvanised.
Your product can be made using stainless steel.

Do you travel, and how far?

Elite Pond Covers travels nationwide to quote and install pond covers.  Expenses for travel will be included in the final quote.

We are very happy with our pond cover. We worked with Shaun to agree on a design that really would keep the leaves out of the pond, yet still look good as a piece of art….. We think that’s exactly what we’ve now got – and everyone who sees it, really admires it.

The design work (and the careful measuring up we both did) paid off in what you can see in the photos. Not only that, Shaun was a pleasure to work with – open, straightforward, honest and keen to communicate.

Those qualities are exactly what you need when you are commissioning an original piece of garden art like this – because it takes a while to get it right – you have to discuss it, to and fro, and there need to be a few site visits.

The right solution is one that you are going to be happy with AND one that Shaun can actually build! That’s what we got, and the results speak for themselves…
