This garden is adjeacent to the extensively used patio in the rear of this quiet backyard in Finneytown.

The customers wanted a water feature for the sound and ambiance. There were several laundry tubs sunk into the ground here when we started. They wanted a nice home for their new lotus plant so we created a small pond with a 30" deep center to accomosate the lotus and 12" deep side shelves for marginals. A small recirculating pump was also added for a soft rippling sound effect.

   Pat digging out the shelf.
   Rubber liner insatlled and filling up.
   almost there!
   all done! The customer later added mulch to the edges making the feature seamless in the landscape.
