This client wanted a contemporary pond to add interest to the garden and tie in with the style of the modern house. The garden was in an amazing setting overlooking Porlock in Somerset. The pond added a tranquility to the garden and had a fountain placed in it to create the gentle sound of water. I created a ledge around the edge of the pond with water loving plants placed on it in the shallow water. The natural slate patio slabs give a clean contemporary finish with seating and a plant bed with grasses and colourful plants to soften the edge of the patio area.
