    Hi Maniakbb

    Thanks - glad you like the garden. The clients love it too.

    The pond is 3500 x 2025mm and is 600mm deep with a shelf for the marginals.The paving is 1200mm wide at the sides of the pond and narrows to 400mm wide along the rill.

    The rill channel is 3050 x 500mm and falls into a catch pool 800 x 600mm.

    All the best and let me know if I can be of further help.

    The garden walls were already there and constucted from London bricks. The pool walls were made from concrete blocks with steel reinforcement.

    The water feature is a bespoke design by Peter Reader Landscapes to fit with the broader garden layout. It is a fibreglass pond and rill constructed on site with a bespoke stainless steel blade waterfall into the lower pool.

Cheryl Freedman added this to Why Your Contemporary Garden Will Look Ace With Straight Edges3 April 2018

Perfect pathwaysTurn your path into the main event with a minimal, modern garden design like this one. The straight lines contain a 21st century water feature that adds some dark drama, contrasting with the pale stone and pristine grass. The original brick walls that surround the modern layout help to retain the space’s period charm.Find landscape architects and garden designers in your area

Do you get involved in the garden landscaping?With so many design schemes now linking outside and inside spaces, it’s imperative that the two work together. It’s a given that your interior designer and landscape gardener should communicate and harmonise their designs. You should also expect a lighting designer to collaborate, too. Your designer may be involved in planning terrace space for outdoor furniture and in sourcing or consulting on garden sculptures and exterior structures.Want to liven up your garden?
