Industrial Water Feature

In the context of an old water mill, the like of which forms a large part of the Derbyshire Industrial Heritage, we were asked to design and build a raised bed and water feature which is seen from the house adjacent. We found and reclaimed stone from the site which, along with reclaimed blue and red engineering bricks, are very much the palette of this era of industrial history and make a good relationship to other structures within the local area. The concept was to build something which feels as if it could have formed a part of a Victorian industrial process and has been adapted for garden use. The situation is sunny and dry so the planting is deliberately Mediterranean to give a more contemporary feel and colour throughout the year.
