It is one pool with a stone "bridge". It is approximately 6-ft wide.

Using stone can hide many frost upheavals by allowing the cracking to occur at the mortar joints. But, and this is a big deal, nothing will replace an adequate subsurface structure preparation. You must get below the frost line to provide a solid foundation. Then, you might want to think about forming a basin as a solid piece which, should it move, will move as one piece. We are very fortunate in our area to be able to avoid many of these technical details. Perhaps a local stone yard will have resources for your use.

That's really water in a very well leveled reflecting pool. I believe the pool is contained within a steel edge.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Reflecting Pools as Liquid Assets
Amazing use of a narrow space! This lap pool doubles as a water feature surrounded by Mediterranean perennials and native stone. A "floating" footbridge connects the entry walk to the rest of the landscape and creates a magical illusion for anyone crossing the water.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to When Less Is Really More in Your Garden
Embrace your home’s architecture. There is something profoundly significant about a well-authored relationship between a home and the land upon which it sits. In the space shown here, simplicity of lines and the home’s reflection in the water create a perfect homogeneous relationship between home and land. You may be asking, “What do I do about my nondescript tract home sitting in the suburbs?” A simple first step would be to look at your home’s architectural style. Craftsman homes, for example, blend perfectly with gardens featuring mass plantings of ornamental switchgrass (Panicum spp and cvs, zones 4 to 9), Russian sage (Perovskia cvs, zones 4 to 9), and ornamental sage (Salvia nemorosa cvs, zones 5 to 9). Several specimen trees such as Japanese maples (Acer palmatum, zones 5 to 8), contorted filbert (Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’, zones 4 to 8) and structural conifers round out the garden.If your home has no clearly defined architectural style, take note of its exterior color and cladding. If your home is clad with gray cultured stone with rose highlights, for example, use that as a starting point for choosing an appropriate plant palette. You may consider plants with silver or blue foliage as well as those with blue, purple and pink flowers. An oversize Italian terra-cotta pot could be an appropriate focal point. Be sure to include some dark green shrubs to give the eye a place to rest.I recently designed a garden for a nice but nondescript home with regard to architectural style. What drew my eye was the way the facade stepped back several times with the front door on the farthest, most recessed portion. I enjoyed the four stepped-back corners so much that I highlighted each one with a tree-form Diablo ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Monlo’, zones 2 to 8), thus creating rhythm while embracing the architecture. Additionally, I created a sense of journey by planting en masse blue dune lyme grass (Elymus arenarius ‘Blue Dune’, zones 4 to 9), which coincidentally repeated the color of the home’s tinted windows. The result is clean and simple.
