Miscanthus Fountain Installation
The new fountain design based on a clump of Miscanthus grasses has now been installed in the partly completed pond on site in Sussex.The picture shows the fountain projecting streams of water from the tips of each pf the 13 grass stems. The water is designed to rise high in the air and then curl over to fall back into the pond below.
The water streams form three different tiers, to provide a unified shape.The fountain was commissioned to provide a tall graceful shape and a good strong sound. The height of the copper Miscanthus structure is 1.5 metres and the overall height of the water is about 3 metres, but can be adjusted.Further photographs will be posted when the pond and surroundings are completed.
