Water feature for a small garden

DSC_0428Water in the garden can be a refreshing oasis that awakens the senses. Here an old millstone and trough have been used to create a sculptural focal point. The gentle dripping noise provides a sense of calm in the garden and masks traffic noise. It is also a great home for many small aquatic plants and wildlife. Water drips through the pebbles below and is recirculated by a hidden pump. The water reflects and enhances the colours of the pebbles and light gravel that dress the feature. When small water features like this are used in the right setting they have the ability to enhance the setting more than any other feature in the garden.
