Yorkshire aquascapes

About Us

You can’t build an award-winning business without an exceptional team. Get to know Yorkshire Aquascapes and what drives us to be your local water feature specialists.

Josh

Josh has always been inspired by the outdoor lifestyle and will often be found outside, hiking and exploring the hills, forests and mountains of the UK. He’ll take any chance to walk near waterfalls and streams, providing him inspiration for new projects.

Previously working in Medical Device Executive Recruitment Josh served clients and medical companies around the world. He traded his laptop for a shovel and his office for the great outdoors, starting on a new adventure with Yorkshire Aquascapes in order to pursue his dream job working outside with nature and creating beautiful water features. Since then, his skills and knowledge have grown and so has the business, winning awards, recognition and achievements for their Water Feature work.

Outside of work Josh practises Brazilian Jui-Jitzu and competes in competitions around the UK, winning Silver in the British Open and Gold in the Yorkshire Open.

Simon

Simon has a passion for gardening and fish-keeping and is our local Plant Expert. He brings his eye for detail and knowledge of plants, wildlife and ecosystems to help our projects come to life and make sure they will be home to lots of happy wildlife.

Simon has travelled the world and rubbed shoulders with celebrities working as a sound engineer in his previous job before discovering that his lifelong love of plants and knowledge of pond building could allow for him to hang up his headphones and follow his dream job working outdoors with Yorkshire Aquascapes.

Outside of work Simon will usually be walking his dog Ted, cooking (he’s a great cook!) or spending time in his own garden.

Fish Man Dan

Fish man Dan is our resident expert on Fish and Aquatic life. He will often join us on projects which require an extra set of specialist hands. Dan runs his own company installing Aquariums and Tanks inside homes and before this spent his career managing fish and aquatic shops where he learnt a wealth of information. A fish enthusiast since a young kid, Dan loves nothing more than getting his waders on and joining us on our pond projects out in the field.

Digger Dan

Digger Dan is our expert Heavy Machinery operator. When it comes to large diggers or plant equipment, we call in the big guns. With lots of experience excavating for Pond and Water Feature projects we trust Dan to do the ‘hard graft’ and ensure that our projects run smoothly. A joiner by trade and a very handy man, he is always an asset to our team.
