How a Kangaroo Valley dam grew to be a beautiful water feature

How a Kangaroo Valley dam grew to be a beautiful water feature.

Patience is a good attribute to have when planning a garden. Not all gardens can be ‘instant’, and its often a good thing. The satisfaction of seeing a garden develop is one of the great pleasures of garden -making.

This pond at a rural property in Kangaroo Valley is located close to the house and led a previous life as a simple dam. The owners decided to give it a makeover to incorporate it into the garden as a feature, and I advised on planting within and around the dam/pond. The photos tell the story:
