We just had one day's warning that the landscaping company was coming the next day to install the water feature. That day being yesterday ... one of the hottest and most humid days we have been having of course!
The guys were troopers and worked very hard .. were super polite ... a great company to work with.
We were just a small job ... they work on very large scale ones.
So we were happy to be able to have this done and so quickly.
Now .. on with the pictures !
Starting with the "ugh" space !
When the guys finished .. John and I decided to lay down the gray flagstone slabs we had on hand the last two years (one of those projects that didn't get done type thing)
I liked the "Zen" feeling they gave the space .. and of course my driftwood !
I don't want to overwhelm the area though .. I want more of a "Zen" look which is uncluttered really.
So over time I will try out a few plants .. a few touches here and there to see what looks best.
The birds and beneficial insects (we saw a little dragonfly already!) are happy .. and we can't stop looking at the space because it is just so pretty.
A project doesn't have to be on a large scale to make a huge impact .. this gem has made us both very happy and certainly draws us in even more to the calm relaxing atmosphere it rewards us with !
