First water feature in New South Wales, in sunny Goolgowi. It didn’t take long for the birds to find it! Or the dog!
I finished this stream a few weeks ago. I can’t claim credit for the design – that goes to Meg Geary of MG Gardens. Meg came up with a great design for the space, and I just built the stream where she planned! The rest of the excellent landscaping was done by Jay from Eco […]
Recently finished this great little stream in Camberwell. This is near the front gate, so visitors will be greeted by the sound of the running water as they open the gate to walk up the path. But before walking up the path, they will definitely be pausing to take in the scene. I have placed […]

Patrick Handley of Waterscapes Australia made it happen, while I helped him with the design and construction for a large part of it.

Update on a new pond I am creating in Kangaroo Ground.
