Sorry, but I don't know. It was there when I was commissioned to design the garden.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Splashily colored, bright showoffs can take away from a landscape's blended textures and natural earth tones. But this particular design changed my mind. A bright blue ball amidst a bed of hostas reflects the sky the way a pool or a pond would. In the absence of water, a bright blue metallic surface is the next best thing.

+1 for the rock; and the natural feel but still the openness of the lawn area.
