Ashton-in-MakerfieldBack to projects
The client purchased their own copper (Acer) tree and asked us to devise a water feature with a rill that would be a bold statement in their front garden.
The client's preferred choice of material was travertine tile - a rather 'in vogue' material for 2010.
The feature was excavated and constructed in the same way that a swimming pool would be built. Concrete walls, foundations and all the electrical cables for the lighting and pumps were totally invisible. When one was to look into the crystal clear water, one needed to see the tiled interior of the feature.
Lighting was to be a key element for this construction project, with all moving water to be illuminated during the hours of darkness - a welcoming sight on dark evenings on the approach up the driveway.
The rest of the garden will be finished at a later date when the client's finances allow.
