CONTEMPORARY WATER FEATURES.
A well-designed water feature can become a compelling focal point, particularly in contemporary small urban gardens. The sound created, be it the pulse of a modest trickle or the surge of a waterfall adds life and rhythm. Reflection manipulates light to add another dimension, throughout the day and with evening lighting – creating unusual silhouettes. The material selected, when cohesively combined with the rest of the design, can add unique sculptural qualities. The positioning of a water feature is important not only to inspire the views, but also in a practical sense in terms of exposure to light, maintenance access and avoiding moisture near seating areas. Be it a city courtyard or an urban roof terrace, using the right scale within the space, integrating a water feature can add an important natural element into the fabric of the design.
