Water always has been an integral element in gardening.
But water has the power to do more than nurture plants.
Water sparkles. It moves. It produces soothing sounds.
Fountains, ponds, waterfalls, swimming pools and other water features provide the pause that refreshes in an outdoor space. They can be simple, as in a tall ceramic pot plumbed with a single pipe. Or they can be dazzling and complex, as in a series of waterfalls tumbling between rock faces.
Water can create an urban oasis, masking the harsh sounds of the city with its own bubbling music. Water can help us to commune with nature, providing a home for lily pads and fish and attracting birds and wildlife. Water can transport us, conjuring images of Asian gardens, European courtyards, or the jungles of Africa and the Amazon.
Here are some water features that glisten and flow throughout the First State. We hope they will inspire and delight you.
