How does your water supply feed to the center? Does it flow to both ends?
Such a clever design for a water feature!
It has a pump that pushes water up to middle of the table and flows over to both ends. The water is then recirculated up through the middle of the table. Hope that helps!
fresco meals with their family. They also wanted a water feature in the courtyard that could be heard from every common room in the house. So a combination of the two goals in one structure was a good fit for the home owners. The height of the water drop is tall enough that the falls can be heard in

Water flows over the corten rusted-steel edges of this courtyard waterfeature and down into a small channel also filled with pebbles. This whole structure was set to finish flush with only a half-inch gap between the water surface and a cast concrete seat wall that extends along the courtyard’s perimeter
this a water feature or glass?
How long will the corten steel last as a water feature?
I have been advised this type of steel may not be too great over a long period of time as the water washes the rust effect away? It looks fantastic though and would like to use it if possible.
This looks fantastic. I can't figure out how you get the water to flow and how smooth it is. Is this an optical illusion and does the water flow from the wider to smaller widths ? Thanks

Concrete has a tendency to crack due to expansion

Geometry lessons. The strong, squared-off lines of this garden are softened by the moving water and the moving fish; and the low, wide walls surrounding the pool provide the perfect spot to sit and watch the koi to your heart's content. The walls also result in a deeper pool area, a plus for keeping

Koi Fish, Gold fish and water plants bring a new mini ecosystem of life, and provide a focal point and meditational environment. The integral colored concrete wall begins at the main water feature and weaves to the south west corner of the yard where water once again emerges out of a 4” stainless steel
integral pewter colored concrete wall defining and retaining earth around it. A water feature is the backdrop to this outdoor room extending the flooring material (slate) into the vertical plane covering a wall that houses three playful stainless steel spouts that spill water into a large basin. Koi
provides children with an opportunity to safely play with water by floating toy boats down the channel. At the north eastern end of the integral colored concrete wall, a warm western red cedar bench extends perpendicular out from the water feature on the outside of the slate patio maximizing seating space

It would seem as though the water would evaporate pretty quickly as I'm here in FL. Is this real stone or the fake stuff, and how much $$$?

love this water feature with the succulents around it.
11. Water for life. All kinds of insects and birds and amphibians will use almost any water feature you can provide. And if that water feature does double duty as a sculptural element, so much the better.
