Rectangular garden water feature

Intimate Scale

Since Power’s backyard is quite small (45 feet by 45 feet), adding a long water feature dead center, where it divides the space in half, might seem counterintuitive.

But people prefer more confined spaces. "When I design, I think about circles some 9 feet in diameter. People like to be close, within 5 feet of one another," she says. "Further apart," she adds, "doesn’t feel friendly."
