We were asked to design and forge a large pond cover for grandmother, who wanted to keep her grandchild safe from falling in the pond.
Her grandchild often visited so she wanted to keep her from falling into the large-ish garden pond.
Here are some things we had to keep in mind for the design and production:
- access to the pond so that they could clean it garden pond
- design to have a butterfly theme
- strong enough to hold the weight of an adult
- it needed to be reasonably weather proof
We made it in two halves, so that it was light enough for the covers to be lifted off – as a solution to allow for the pond to be cleaned.
