If you order a product from gardenis.co.uk in March and then email a picture or short video clip 30 seconds to 2 minutes long of the product in place fully working or in place with your order details, that can be used on the product page as a customer image/video and on social media pages you can get a cashback refund of £5 for a photo and £10 for a video.
1. Do not feature any people in the photo.
2. The product image or video must be of the product in its finished state. eg. A medium preformed pond - the image / video should be of it in its hole with aquatic plants around it, not just a photo of it on the grass in your garden. A shed should be completed, not just in flat pack state on the patio.
Simply send your image or video to email@example.com and once accepted, the cashback will be sent to you.
FLOATING - Water lily, common water-crowfoot, frogbit.
POND EDGES - Marsh marigold, globeflower, pillwort, brooklime, watermint, lesser spearwort, water forgot-me-not.

Gardenis.co.uk sell 3 sizes of preformed pond;
Small - 85 litres is about the size of a large Belfast sink (£30 inc UK delivery)
Medium - 200 litres is about the size of a small bath (£48 inc UK delivery)
Large - 420 litres, the surface area of an average fireside rug. (£78 inc UK delivery)
(Delivery is usually 1 to 2 days excluding weekends)
Once complete, children can monitor the pond over the next few years to see if it has any attracted any wildlife, such as frogs. Ponds are not suitable for gardens of homes with very young children, eg 3 and under. If one is installed in such a garden, it should be in area only accessible behind a fence, with a locked gate that only adults can open.
The preformed plastic ponds have been selling great this year, available in 3 sizes, the smallest (£30) being not much bigger than a Belfast sink, the medium (£48) the size of a small bath and the large (£78) the size of a fireside rug (All prices include delivery). However, with a calculator you can work out the approx surface they would make if all those sold this year were placed together. It's surprising just how big the area is, in fact its probably not far off being equivalent to this large wildlife pond above!
I know plenty of the customers were intending on creating a mini wetland in their garden, with native British aquatic plants, such as Marsh Marigold, so its great to think that a surface area of freshwater as big as that above has been created this year, just by customers of gardenis.co.uk. All will be providing habitats for insects, frogs, toads, and a place for garden birds to access water, across GB & Northern Ireland. And the great news is that every week the total surface area just keeps on growing. If the ponds keep selling as well as they have been, at this rate we'll eventually create a surface area as big as LAKE WINDERMERE! ;0)
