The water feature was added to help create the owner's dream tropical garden. The koi pond was built by StoneFish on a former parking area on the property. Oolite and coral stone were used for the pond and surrounding areas. The sculpture and planter are client's own.
The tranquil Koi pond features two waterfalls and lush plantings around the perimeter. The water feature was incorporated in the design not only for its visual beauty but for the soothing sound of the water.
This custom pavilion sits gracefully on the back of this large Koi pond, shallow enough for kids to play in and deep enough for a private collection of Koi. Native granite boulders and marginal plant material enhances the natural setting while helping to maintain the clarity of the water.
The Asian style gazebo and koi pond in the back yard that John Colaneri, and Anthony Carrino from HGTV's "Cousins on Call" have built for the Park family, is a place for the family to relax and enjoy. Before, their backyard had no shade, pond or landscaping. It was an unused space that could not be enjoyed.

This beautiful backyard feels like a sanctuary with stone walkways and koi pond. A variety of lush plants and flowers surround the stone paths and a bench is provided next to the pond for the ultimate relaxation.
The client wanted to incorporate the feel of an Italian grotto fountain into the design. In this location, Harold Leidner Landscape Architects was able to take advantage of the natural grade change of the site and the finished grade of the house. The difference between these two grades allowed for a retaining wall to become the fountain wall.
Antique stone pavers reclaimed from China cap the knee walls, act as floating steps and as coping on the benches. The aged patina is impossible to reproduce since it comes from hundreds of years of use and adds a historical permanence to the garden. Water is heard as it gently pours from a hand-chiseled stone rill into an elongated pool. Filled with koi and water lilies in bloom, the water reflects the sky above, surrounding trees and plants.
The semi-radius stone work above the pond picks up on an architectural element found in another part of the home’s garden.
