Bowmanville (Ontario)

This dry stone water-garden feature, near Bowmanville, Ontario, which incorporates round glacial field stone gathered from the property, was originally intended to have a turf top coping. This would have softened the look of the stone, giving the wall a finished look and blending it better into its environment. The 24 inch high circular wall extends down well below grade inside the pool so that a pleasing structural arrangement of stones (rather than a rubber liner) can be seen below the surface of the water. A steady flow of water enters the pool from the small circular arch.
