Fountain Rill

This garden is a transformative study of form and volume. It begins solidly in and of the earth, with strong rectangular forms arising and containing water, plantings and passage. The resulting garden feels powerful, monumental and visually compelling.

Garden and house are linked at two elevations. Space is created and maximized by the stacking of program functions. Long views are made accessible from the deck above, while visual focus is created in the main garden.

It is a stainless steel weir (sometimes called a scupper)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

I asked a few of my landscape architecture pals what to call this type of fountain, and all we could come up with was "spout and trough fountains." While the source of the water is not technically a spout, the way the water drops from the runner resembles one. This fountain emphasizes the different levels of this patio area, with the water cascading from one down to the next.
