Pond in the Woods

The owners wanted large ponds on their property, including one for swimming, and they wanted them to feel as though they were always part of the existing landscape. The location of the ponds needed to sustain the original hydrology of the site. While studying the site, we found existing wetlands. Our designers needed to ensure that these wetlands would continue to be supplied by site run-off after a substantial rainfall. Indigo Farm sited the ponds just above these wetlands, with the swimming pond at a slightly higher elevation. A granite wall between the two ponds, where the water from the upper pond flows into the lower pond, creates a waterfall.
