Koi Pond/Water Garden mediterranean patio
 

Koi Pond/Water Garden

Bill Bibb, Designer Archiverde Landscape, built by Pool Environments

The project includes a koi pond/water garden and waterwall. The koi/water garden acts as a "mote" to the entrance of the residence. Thick native Texas limestone leuders create a bridge visitors cross to reach the home. A large glass wall with built in planters on top is settled in the middle of the water garden and greets visitors upon arrival. It also services as a divider between the main house and guest quarters.

Our client purchased these items. The glass reflecting balls were commissioned by an artist in Dallas.

What type of underwater lights were used here? - The lighting at least from the picture looks great. It looks subtle which is exactly what I'm going for. I'm looking for soft lighting so I can better see my Koi at night.

There are actually two different types of lights installed. The lights installed in the wall are Jandy LED lights. With the LED lights, you also have the ability to change the color of the lights. I believe there are 5 different color settings. The second set of lights run down the middle of the garden and are called stand lights. They are housed in a canister roughly the size of a canning jar and are topped with a brass lilly pad. This homeowner leaves the stand lights on 24 hours a day and uses the LED for additional lighting at night.

Yes, they are glass balls. I believe the homeowner had them commissioned from an artist. They are beautiful!

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Koi Find Friendly Shores in Any Garden Style
Mediterranean gardens and koi ponds don't usually mix, but this installation proves the two can blend together with no problem.
