The owners of this contemporary house landscaped part of their yard but came to a stop when they reached a rocky slope. They knew they wanted a water feature, but they didn't know how to incorporate it into the landscape.
Our solution calls for nestling a pond into the slope, building a cascading waterfall and surrounding the area with a mix of traditional and exotic plants to create a bold focal point.
