A man made pond? Absolutely, we wanted to created a folly for this client. You just get a glimpse of the tree house balcony, which was the focal point of this water garden.

LOVE this project! A Designer Show House is a great opportunity to really be creative! I have done several and have always enjoyed being a part of the total transformations that occur. Are you doing any now?

No, I done plan on it right now, but we have participated in at least six show houses. It's a big investment of time and dollars, but fun to showcase your talents. I love contributing to a good cause. The toughest part is dealing with the weather and timelines. The return on investment is somewhat immediate and long term.

It is not a grass but variegated Iris. Beautiful foliage, purple flower and contrast.

Both actually!! This garden was for a show house and fund raiser, which lasted for the entire month of May. The Iris's are in pots, because the pond was done with a liner. We had to dismantle this garden once the show was over, which was a shame, but we found a buyer for the structure (which was great, so someone could enjoy it).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Paint a Garden Delightful With Iris
It's a good idea to plant irises in clumps, since this is how they typically grow in the wild. Plant four to five rhizomes together — but don't get them too close. Irises multiply every year, so leave a little space for them to grow.There is nothing worse than a line of single irises along a pond's edge. Avoid this, and plant them in groups instead.
Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Eastern Redbud
That's interesting. Founding fathers Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were both fans of the Eastern redbud and planted many of them on their respective properties, Monticello and Mount Vernon.
