Here is a nice water feature we recently completed. The backdrop is tongue and groove larch. The purpose of the wings on the mini pergola is to protect the sluicing water from buffeting by the cross wind. The legs of the pergola are mounted on steel shoes which are in turn encased in water proof concrete to protect against rot. The lower chamber is filled with Nymphaea, Typha, Tulbaghia and other water plants. The sluice and sub aqua lighting are remote controlled.
