Rockeries and garden ponds often present a bigger drowning hazard than swimming pools as children find running water, goldfish and frogs irresistible. The plants and shrubbery that tend to surround these features often obscure visibility, increasing the danger.

Katchakid® has developed a variety of unobtrusive and aesthetically pleasing fittings to use with all styles of garden features. We can protect them all, including waterfalls, bridges, natural rocks and stones.
 
Our semi-permanent jet-black pond netting is designed so that you look through it rather than at it. Once the net is established and plants have grown up through the netting we find that you don't perceive the nets mesh at all.

* We recommend a heavy-duty hammer drill. For best possible results use a core drill with a diamond tipped drill bit. These drills can be rented on a daily basis from large hardware stores such as Home Depot. When using a core drill it is useful to use a wooden template to avoid the drill from sliding. A template can be produced from a 4” x 4” piece of wood with a ¾”in hole drilled through it. If using a core drill you will require a water pipe.
