Graystone Apartments is a locally-owned luxury apartment chain in Central PA.
To date, Graystone has hired us to install large koi ponds at 7 of their apartment complexes.
Commercial projects often involve working in confined spaces, which often requires a unique design. In this case, the entrance had ponds on either side, which were connected underneath the entrance walkway. The water flowed out of the wetland bog filter, into the first pond, through a pipe that went under the walkway and into the second pond.
To create a dramatic effect for visitors and residents arriving at the front entrance, we made the pond 3 feet deep and with abrupt vertical edges, which allows viewers to see the full depth from the edge of the pond. We used large weathered mossy boulders from the Ozark mountains of Missouri to give the pond an aged look. Then, we then added a few copper bowls for an ornamental twist, to match the rest of the building which is quite ornamental and elegant.
Graystone residents are now greeted by friendly koi when they come home.
This business was remodeling its entrance to create a more beautiful, upscale appearance.
The remodel involved replacing the front doors and adding a roof over the exterior entryway. For our part of the project, we added a fountain with stacked slate urns, copper bowls, a few bubbling boulders, and a stump to create a rustic, natural fountain (on the left).
On the entrance's right side, we added a trio of copper bowls. We then added outdoor lighting, landscaping, and trees to complete the look.
The business owners were pleased with the outcome because it gives all their visitors a pleasant and welcoming experience when visiting the business.
