Wizard of Oz Garden with Ponds and Water Features


As we head into the holiday season, building ponds, pondless waterfalls, and water features tends to slow down a bit and we start to think about the Home and Garden Shows and the exhibits we will be building. Here are some photos of our Wizard of Oz garden from last year, complete with a live Dorothy.

    LUST! I'm a major Oz fan! My father read us Oz books when I was a child, back in the late 1950's, early 1960's. I'd love everything there, even though I don't spend much time in the yard, too hot, too many bugs, I'm allergic to bites and stings of bugs. I've always wanted a water feature, but I suspect they aren't allowing them with the Texas drought going on.

    We love Oz, too, everything about it! That's why we created this garden. I know that they are building water features in Austin. We have a fellow CAC (Certified Aquascape Contractor) there, Matt Boring. with Texas Ponds and Water Features. He does beautiful work! please check him out.
