Stunning Water Gardens And Custom Water Features

Perhaps the most unique part of this property are the custom water features. 4 ponds and 4 separate waterfalls seamlessly mingle with the landscape and structures that define this property. Previously owned by a custom pond company, every water feature is thoughtfully designed and expertly executed.

Waterfalls and Streams

Two of the waterfall features act as flowing streams, gently cascading water down carefully placed rock slabs to create the feel of a natural babbling brook. The sounds of these features add an additional layer of sound privacy for your guests, something that is difficult to achieve with alternative white noise options.

Our primary waterfall stretches 22ft+ wide and serves as the backdrop for our event pavilion. A custom 200 sq ft terrace was built over the top of the receiving basin so it feels as if the water just disappears under your feet. This is truly a remarkable feature and is one that will surely stand out to your guests.

Custom Ponds

4 custom ponds are placed around the property. These custom water features add depth and festivity to the property with very little maintenance overall. All ponds come equipped with necessary pumps and instructions for care.

The largest pond is a custom Japanese-style koi pond that sits at the end of one of our cascading waterfall streams. This pond is stocked with a school of golden orfe fish that will swim right up to you in hopes that you have food. Never underestimate how excited your guests will be to feed the fish!

A smaller pond sits below the other waterfall stream and is full of lily pads, flowers, and frogs! Two additional smaller ponds grace the property, with one of them being at the end of the drive when you pull in – aptly named “the welcome pond”!
