A troughlike fountain takes advantage of the grade change of this deck-patio hybrid. The height means that the water has about 18 to 24 inches to fall and soothe with its splash. Keeping the deck small means there's room to give the koi pond beneath the appropriate scale.
Almost every element of this deck and little garden call out to me. I like the use of plants between the paving stones, the draping foliage teamed with the falling water, and the complete lack of lawn. LOVE IT!
