Over 35 years specialist in pond plants
Van der Velde Waterplanten in Bleiswijk is a renowned nursery and trading company for all possible water and pond plants. The company of Simon and son Chris van der Velde specializes in the construction, design and maintenance of ponds of all types and sizes.
Vision and mission
Van der Velde has a clear vision and mission. In our current computerized and 'petrified' society, there is a great urge to 'get back to nature'. The quickest and easiest way to achieve this is to design our own living and working environment in a natural, green and blue way, with clear running water that is kept healthy by a balanced vegetation of water and pond plants.
Van der Velde, with its 35 years of expertise and experience, wants to contribute to this.

Simon specializes in growing hardy aquatic plants and only the right species needed for a successful pond. Simon also says that the use of expensive pumps, filters, water conditioners and water testers are unnecessary. With the right pond plant combination, biologically balanced and clear pond water can be achieved naturally just like in nature.
Chris van der Velde
Chris joins the family business in 2012. In addition to the grower's blood, he has also inherited his father's spirit of commerce and innovation. Using today's communication technologies, his mission is to connect as many people as possible with nature.
