Water is heard as it gently pours from a hand-chiseled stone rill into an elongated pool. Filled with koi and water lilies in bloom, the water reflects the sky above, surrounding trees and plants.
Antique stone pavers reclaimed from development projects in China cap the knee walls and act as floating steps. The aged patina on these stones is impossible to reproduce since it comes from hundreds of years of use and adds a historical permanence to the garden.
