The sphere is 1m in diameter. The smallest size is 760mm diameter. The largest that we have made is 2m. We could make bigger!

As for the base, the Dark Planer is quite a heavy piece so it is fixed to a sub ground level foundation pad of concrete.

Just get your brain spinning. But the most important part once you're done is to remember to pretend that nobody can figure this out just by looking at it. (gosh...)

I would love to replace the grass yard with something even a little spectacular along these lines. Stunning yet simple.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Alison Hodgson added this to How to Help Your Dog Be a Good Neighbor
Train. A well-behaved dog makes everything easier. Once upon a time I wasn't a fan of dogs. I just knew too many that were untrained and didn't get enough exercise. Frankly, it's a lot of work. Taking the time to train your dog early will pay off for years to come, for you and certainly your neighbors.Exercise. My friend likes to say, "A tired puppy is a good puppy." She's referring to her teenage son, but it's literally true, too. So many problems can be avoided by giving your dog a daily walk. It's good for both of you and builds your relationship.
Frank Organ added this to Circle Round for Great Garden Design
Spheres make a statement, especially when set in a circular pathway. I first saw slate spheres like this one a few years ago at the Chelsea Flower Show, and since have seen them used as very effective water features — most dramatically when lit from the inside, creating a stunning night feature.

In the background you see a terrace. Would it be a good idea to run this in front (4 feet tall and maybe 6-8 feet wide) to help deaden road noise. Plant evergreens on top.
