Retaining Rock Walls & Waterfalls that Look Natural

Landscapes are meant to blend into the surrounding topography. Such enhancements as waterfalls, rock outcroppings and retaining walls can be created to seem like they’ve been there forever and thereby improve the value of your property. Our rock ledges look so natural that they show no evidence of ever having been moved by human hands. Waterfalls that cascade into a fish pond or swimming pool create a natural focal point on your property.

Custom Landscape and Pool Design

Flowing water features are valuable enhancements to add around existing swimming pools. The beauty of an artfully crafted rock garden and a cascading waterfall can soften the edges of a pool to make it part of the landscape. The sight and sounds of water flowing into a swimming pool is a unique feature that will enrich your family’s poolside experience. Naturalistic water slides can even be included in the design and are fun for the whole family! There are endless possibilities of how water can be used to create the landscape of your dreams.

Note: Luke + Conor, Thank You again for helping solve our flooding problem. Not only that – the parterre is lovelyLinda Tejpaul
Hi, I stumbled upon your web site via a kamp kenan YouTube video, where they visited your garden. Needless to say, I was stunned. I’ve been an admirer of naturalistic garden design for many years. I’ve visited Japan many times, and had considered those temple gardens to be the ultimate in recreating an environment that pays homage to nature. I was aware of Marpa, whose book is a joy, but now I’ve discovered your work, and its a whole new world of beautiful garden design. Its what I can only dream of. There’s very little in the way of this kind of thing in the UK, where European garden design is the norm, dominated by rigid symmetry, the unnatural forcing of nature into awkward, geometric shapes where being crisp and tidy is the overriding impetus. You demonstrate how naturalism, is far preferable. Everyone is subconsciously evolved to find natural landscape attractive. Its unfortunate that most people don’t realize the importance of respecting nature. You have proven that recreating nature is by far the most attractive form of garden design. Striped lawns and crisp edging isn’t to my taste. The wisdom that your design ethic promotes, appreciating and respecting the natural world, is commendable. It needs to be adopted more widely.Daren
