Create an alcove in your garden:  a birdbath/zen pool or a fountain as a centerpiece, benches or a table of the same stone, natural boulders for accent.

Items currently available are priced.

While many of the following pieces are sold, we do accept commissions for similar pieces.  We have a large selection of stone and can find a piece to fit your taste and budget.

WATER FEATURES: BIRDBATHS, ZEN POOLS, REFLECTION POOLS, AND FOUNTAINS

note: Re birdbaths, we have learned through observation that birds prefer shallower pools. We accommodate by making them fairly shallow.  If you buy a pool that, after a while, you suspect is too deep, put a little rock(s) in it for the birds to stand on.

We use different names. We call our bigger and deeper pools "Zen Pools."  We try to mimic nature with these. Often they have a "mountain" with the pool.  We call our very largest pools "Reflection Pools."  Smaller pools are "Birdbaths" or "Garden Pools." Of course, these are just names.

A hole can be drilled into any one of these garden pools to turn it into a fountain, as was done in the greenstone pool below.

 

 

A variation on a theme: planters can also be made. Holes are drilled in the bottom for drainage. This one made from a naturally-rounded concretion.

Feature Stones for Landscape

We save large boulders that have some quality that makes them attractive yard stones. Some, like the Aphrodite and Jupiter Marble, have beautiful water-worn shapes. Some, like the Circus Conglomerate, have dynamic colors.  Some are muted in color which may well suit Japanese-styled gardens. We have a few boulders that have natural dips or bowls that hold water after a rain, that are water holes for wildlife. We like moss, which is abundant on some of our stones.

Also, when we saw a boulder for table tops, we retain the butt ends for feature landscape stones. Placing the sawn, flat end down, the remainder of the stone looks like the top of a natural rock outcrop. Such can add great beauty and interest to a yard.
