Meandering into Relaxation, Bridgwater
As you can imagine DU Waterscapes are keen promoters of the water gardening lifestyle, relaxing to the gentle sound of water and watching wildlife go about their little lives is what it is all about! So we were delighted to be given the chance to design and install a one of a kind water feature, encompassing these fundamentals of the lifestyle.
We were called out to Bridgwater, Somerset; the clients were in need of a relaxation zone to complement the newly extended house, to come sit by after a hard day’s work. The whole garden was being revamped and the water feature was going to be the cherry on the top, the clients would then have their ideal home.
With only a few key boxes to tick and a rough sketch from the client to work from, we were pretty much given the whole area to work with. A large decked area was desired for alfresco dining with views of a stream, the client had longed for the sound of water so we created a sheet style waterfall. This helped to provide height to the flat garden as well the beautiful sound of babbling water. The larger falls dropped into two smaller water fall pools before joining to the stream and winding its way around the dining area. Dropping into the wildlife pond which can be observed from the new patio doors. Aquatic plants were added to bring pops of colour and interest along the meandering water feature.
The decked area was added a few weeks later, perfectly fitting to the shape of the stream, truly mixing a natural looking stream with a modern style dining area. The perfect space to wind down at the weekends or even entertain numerous guests on those beautiful summer evenings.
