Water Garden • Massachusetts
   


This simple, bold garden of water runnels was derived from agricultural history of the site. The drainage was transformed into a series of water channels in a syncopated pattern. Ranging from 10' wide to 60' wide, the runnels seem to emerge from the rise on the eastern edge of the site. They slide into the planted woodland on the western edge of the site. One long, central walk, on axis with the two-pavilion house, crosses all of the runnels and runs into the existing pine plantation at the southern edge of the landscape.
