Whether you're a novice first-time pond keeper or a seasoned aquarist, the Lotus Toughline Jay Preformed Pond is a fantastic choice if your goal is to create a thriving and biodiverse aquatic environment for fish, plants and local wildlife in your garden. 

Create a natural ecosystem with the help of this versatile and functional preformed plastic pond. Designed to be as user-friendly as possible, this model comes with incorporated shelving that's been moulded into the structure for your convenience. This not only allows for varying planting depths, allowing you to introduce both shallow and deep water species into the water, but it also contributes towards creating a natural waterside look that will help it blend harmoniously into your existing environment. What's more, wildlife such as toads, frogs and newts will use the shelves as 'steps' to get themselves in and out of the pond.

Made from tough and rigid HDPE plastic, this pond is sturdy in construction and should last you a lifetime if installed and maintained to an appropriate level. To set it up correctly, simply dig a hole, position the pond inside and then backfill with sand or soil as you gradually add water. Please note that it is essential to ensure that the pond remains completely level at all times during installation.

The Partridge model is part of Lotus's 'Toughline' collection of preformed ponds, which also includes the Swift, Wren, Partridge, Woodpecker, Dove & Kestrel.
