This water feature is a low maintenance option that provides the tranquil sound of a bubbling brook to the garden of this Portland home. Formal lines contrast nicely with this informal, eclectic year-round meditation spot for friend and artist Ron van Dongen.

What started out as a typical front yard with grass and flower beds, evolved into a year round meditation on the tranquility of water at this Portland home. A bit of formality to compliment the owner’s tropics-infused garden, this pond is a dramatic focal point whether inside the home our out. As an added perk, birds enjoy stopping by to drink and bathe in running water at the top of the urn.
