Plan Description

There are few places more tranquil, more relaxing or more cooling on a hot summer day than a garden with a view of the water--even if the water is no more than a garden pool. In the garden pictured here, two ponds filled with water lilies are used to create a tranquil setting. The first pond is situated near the house, where it is visible from the indoors. The deck is cantilevered over the pond to enhance the closeness of the water, and is covered with an overhead trellis, which ties the two areas together. The trellising also frames the view of the pond from the deck, and of the deck from the garden areas. A second, smaller pond is set into the corner of the garden and has a backdrop of early-spring flowering trees, ferns and shade-loving perennials. This intimate retreat is made complete by setting a bench and planter pots beside the pond. Throughout the property, river-rock paving enhances the natural feeling of the water and provides a sitting area nearby for quiet contemplation. Moss rocks, placed in strategic places in the garden, further carry out the naturalistic theme, as do most of the landscape plants. The shrubs and perennials bordering the undulating lawn provide the needed soft-textured, informal look that makes both ponds seem natural and right at home. Although the ponds are not included in the blueprints for this design, the surrounding landscape lends itself to their placement.
