WATER FEATURES 2009 SEATTLE GARDEN SHOW


In a continued post on the 2009 Seattle Garden Show this post
is focused on outdoor water features. I've grouped them in
types to show just a few of the many styles of water
features there are. After seeing these beautiful
displays it really makes me want to
incorporate one into the garden.

This one was my favourite. I loved the contemporary form and
the infinity edge feel. It's a pond less style so it's easy to maintain.
Love the repetition of shapes of tiles and water feature.
And the lighting inside --- amazing!

Another pond less style but with basalt spires. This style
has been around for a while but still is a great look. For those that
are not familiar with basalt spire water features
the spires are drilled in the center to allow the
water to cascade out.

I really like this reflecting pond. It's unique shape creates
a wonderful focal area.

Another reflecting pond with a Southeast Asian influence. The repeated pots in
the center were a nice touch and anchor this display.

This rill style was beautifully executed. The capped top
also adds additional seating.

The lighting from below on the cube form of the contemporary
water feature was very effective. Water came from the center of
the square and cascaded over all four edges.

This water feature incorporated natural and industrial elements.
The water was cascading out of galvanized flashing
which contrasted nicely with all the mosses,
boulders, logs, and foliage.

And finally, a natural design water fall and pond
as if you came upon it on a mountain hike.

As you can see there were many styles and something for everyone.
I hope it inspires you
to find a place in you garden for one.


BOTANICAL WORDS:
trichocaulon - meaning with a hairy stem
plants with this word - Hypericum trichocaulon

I'd like to do something a little like your last photo. Just something natural that would give the peaceful flowing sound of water. :-) Thanks! The first photo might be of a pond too tempting not to climb into!! ha.

Wow, they had a big variety of displays! I like the first one best as well, it looks so refreshing I'd like to dive in!

I've been wondering around the blogosphere looking for your blog since the last SAGBUTT meeting--and ended up discovering a very nice garden in France, owned by Rob, not Bob. Finally found you after checking Petunia's list of meeting attendees. The eyesight has always been bad, but the hearing used to be okay. If you are interested in the next SAGBUTT meeting, details are up on our blog.

I think you are in a very busy time again. Missing your posts! Hope everything is going well for you.

Becky said...

A garden is not complete without a water feature, is it.

Thanks for sharing these great pix.

You make me curious about this job you took about a year or so ago. I think it's keeping you very busy! (And believe me, I know how hard it is to divide your time between being outdoors - where one should be - and in front of the computer - which is also enjoyable!) Missing your posts. Hope you are doing well.

Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!
