Water Feature

For Butch:
I tried taking a video of the water like you did of your pool, but it was impossible; so here are a handful of sequence stills.

This began twenty years ago with a small galvanized "cow tank" to which I added a small pump and fountain, mostly for the birds. Over time rocks were stacked and plants were added. Now tank is behind a row of hostas. The back half of the tank is under rocks and some creeping plants; the front of the top is an access to a pump and filter.  Eventually I think I can completely conceal the tank.


The pump pushes water  up the hill in a concealed hose and accesses the rock garden "spring" under a a fairly large Creeping Yew.


 It flows out of a mini grotto, down a shallow stream birdbath ...


and spills over a tiny waterfall ....


... into a sunken pool, over a piece of petrified wood into a lower pool under the rocks that spills down into the tank.
