Water features can play an important role in garden design. This home renovation included a two level terrace. Working with the architects upper deck, the Landscape Design included a hardscape of stone masonry walls and terraces. Both levels are connected by a stone staircase. Rippling water hugs the tiled wall falling into a shallow pool. Feelings of privacy and refuge are achieved in this intimate garden space.
