I don't want the vegetation *in* the water... encourages creepy-crawlies.
Lots of plants right to the waters edge

I have seen cattle feed troughs and water troughs done this way. There's different sizes, won't have to worry about sharp edges. In this area we have Scruggs tractor supplies that would have
Water troughs. Use as table/storage base? Benches for eating area if rectangular or just cover frames?
way to tell if a plant needs water is to feel the soil. If the first inch or so of soil is dry to the touch and the plant has average water requirements, it’s time to water. If the plant requires moist soil, you don’t want it to get dry to the touch. This can mean watering at least daily, and more often
Think big These US-style water tanks have been adapted as giant planters, the rough rims softened by coils of hosepipe. Old farmyard troughs (try salvage yards or rural auctions)
night and it's beautiful. Up lights in trees and on fountain. Yes, the stone is a water feature. I've attached a few images so you can see it better.
Hi can u show us how the place looks at night and is that a water fountain by the stone?
It's a 700 lb. boulder, drilled to add a hole that sits on top or a platform with a basin of water underneath. A pump that sits in the basin has a tube tube that runs up through the rock to create a plume of water. Pretty easy set-up except for placing the rock. I had to hire a crane to drop it in place
and they can become very large. They also need to be grown in a higher elevation where they get a good hard frost every year and they need regular water. The ivy growing on the wall is English ivy and was selected because it keeps it's leaves year round. The maple is a miniature Japanese Maple and they

This was a new home. Our owners loved the lot on a corner with water on two sides so we demoed the existing home and built this one for them. See aerial photo.

sun's heat and stands out against the deep blue skies, lush green landscape and azure water. Few things look cooler than white stucco walls, coupled with a soft accent color, reflected in a pool of deep blue water.

planning to put in a vanishing edge pool, but the pool contractor is trying to talk us out of it. I am just wondering if you find that you are replacing water and losing heat more than in a traditional pool?
Is this the illusion of infinity edge because of location but water does not really flow over edge?also is this a fiberglass pool?What color is the water?
company to get the best and most accurate information. In general, yes I think you would lose some heat then with a traditional pool. You always lose water with a pool due to evaporation and usage, but I don't think you would lose more then the average with an infinity edge. Hope that helps!
love hoe the pool and hot tub overlook the water

Gorgeous Time at the water is the best!
Although it was laborious, the completed project has become an invaluable feature of Farrington's home, allowing for easy entertaining and an amazing 360-degree view of the lake. Farrington often can be found on the deck, greeting friends passing by on their boats.
