Residential Landscape Architecture
Large Water Garden - Washington, PA
This project won a national award from the Perennial Plant Association. The
summary of the project as written on the Perennial Plant Association website:
The client of a Southwestern Pennsylvania home wanted a water garden
composed of an upper pond/bog area to act as a natural filter for the stream,
and lower pond. The client also wanted four-season interest with the most color
in summer when the family hosts many outdoor events. Ornamental grasses
provide structure and interest year round. Plants were chosen for their low
maintenance and lack of appeal to animals including deer and rabbits. The
design provided terrific perennial combinations as noted by the judges.
The upper pond/bog measures 7' x 10'. The rocks
range in size from 2' x 3' to the largest rocks being
9' x 9'. The main pond measures 16' x 30'. There is a
space for the addition of a gazebo in the future.
