Build it in. Tables with a hollowed-out channel for ice, drinks or even fire are always a welcome sight on a patio, especially one that is too short on space to accommodate a separate cooler or fire bowl. But tables that use that channel as part of a larger water feature deserve special recognition.
Waterside dining in Dallas. In a shady Texas courtyard, a concrete picnic table doubles as a water feature, with a pumped rill flowing through its center to small ponds on either ends. In surrounding rooms, visitors also enjoy hearing the sound of falling water as it runs through the system. See the rest of this home
A concrete picnic table doubles as a rill water feature with small pond outlets on both ends. Falling water can be heard from every communal space in the house, as well as from the master bedroom.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
I think we should do a concrete dining table just like this one but not with a fountain or water feature in the center - instead we plant it up with succulents and sedum and have it in the cabana area...and what if you screen in the cabana so you can eat in there without mosquitoes?
