Reflected Glory Trends Volume 19, No 11

"This water feature mirrors the surrounding landscape, adding a contemplative air.

Water features have come a long way from being ornamental fountains tucked in amongst the shrubbery. The large reflection pool in this garden is more than just an accent piece, it is the central focus of the design.

…The stone wall, made from volcanic rock, anchors the design and gives it a local flavor. Water flows from boxes set into the wall and are made from concrete drainage piping.

"As everything in the garden is on a larger scale than is usual for a garden, we used industrial rather than domestic materials for the reflection pool," says Wendelborn."
