Part of the 'Instant' family of preformed ponds created and designed by Lotus, the Lotus Instant Perch Preformed Pond is a fantastic starter pond for beginners or those who have small or restricted outdoor space.

Boasting an informal, natural-looking shape that will ensure a seamless transition from land to water, this preformed plastic pond will blend in harmoniously with your existing environment. The textured rock finish provides a natural waterside look that will contribute towards attracting local wildlife into your garden.

A wonderful feature of this pond is the incorporated shelf that facilitates the planting of marginal plant species that thrive in shallower water around the edges of the pond, such as yellow iris or flowering rush. What's more, animals such as frogs, toads and newts will use the shelf to their advantage as a pathway in and out of the pond respectively. 

Another fantastic selling point for this pond is how easy it is to install; simply dig a hole, place the pond inside and backfill with soft sand or sifted soil as you gradually add water, making sure the pond remains completely level at all times. 

Each pond is manufactured from UV-resistant, high-density polyethylene plastic to ensure durability and long life. We assure you that this pond will become a much-loved, wildlife-friendly water feature in your garden that will provide many years of aquatic pleasure if installed and maintained appropriately.

The Perch model is part of Lotus's 'Instant' collection of preformed ponds, which also includes the Chub, TenchRoachBream & Pike.

perch preformed pond

An excellent small pond that was bought as we only have a small space. The general shape and the in built shelving makes it very adaptable for pond plants, a few fish and wildlife.
