Often there are regions within Thai gardens where it is hard to cultivate grass or plants. There can be many reasons why this happens, but usually it is due to heavy shade, or excess water run-off during wet seasons. In this example, a homeowner in Bangkok was fed up with trying to grow grass in his small front garden and asked the design team at Pornchai Garden to come up with some suggestions.
The team suggested they build a waterfall pond for the area, which would give the owner the opportunity to keep fish, improve the view, and provide somewhere nice to relax.
Natural rocks make up the waterfall part of this new concrete pond, which comes fitted with a mechanical filter, pump, plants, stones, new grass and spotlights for night time viewing. The pond is suitable for keeping fish, and the team advised on chemicals to use in the water to kill mosquito growth.
The surrounding pathway areas were also improved by the team, who stripped the old grass, added coloured pebbles, and utilised existing plants and some new ones to create the new look.
The new garden goes well with the existing pathway and house, and now renains a much more pleasant place to spend time and relax.
