What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Reflecting Pools as Liquid Assets
Two planted areas of the landscape are divided by a small, raised pool finished as an extension of the architecture. The sheet of water slides over the edge of the water feature into a recessed channel at its base, creating a small but important moment in this landscape.More:16 Amazing Home Pools35 Fabulous FountainsLandscape Trends: Spout and Trough Fountains
Frank Organ added this to Gardens Tap Into Rill Water Features
Rills without planting. As a contrast, here we see a raised wide rill without any plants at all. The rounded cobbles in the base create interest, while the clear, still water reflects the surrounding garden. The raising and separating of the rill by the use of a surround of cobbles makes a real feature of the rill.
Frank Organ added this to The Right Stone for Your Garden Design
Water features. The true depth of a stone’s color shines through when the stone is wet, making cobbles, pebbles and paddle stones beautiful choices in water features. Paddle stones are perfect for lining pools and streams, as their flat surfaces create natural mosaics of neutral colors.Gardens Tap Into Rill Water Features
