Does anyone have an idea of what grasses are planted in the water garden? And also, how to line the bed of the water garden as well?
Does the water in this feature flow, or is it standing water? I love the look!
Would you like to know the length and width of the water feature or thecourtyard ?
The pond is an old board formed concrete watering trough for cows! Thanks for asking. Dan

However, wood that's not harvested sustainably can be environmentally destructive. When choosing wood floors,
