A New Haven Wildlife Magnet

Harold Pohl transformed an unexciting hillside view into one with streams full of waterfalls, and a mill, with the water falling into a pond containing lilies and fish. It attracted wildlife too!

My home is in a sloping wooded area and the view from my front window was a hill covered with grass. Not much to get excited about. I’d seen some articles on water gardens and contacted Living Water Creations, a local company specializing in water gardens. The sloping land was very exciting to them, so together we planned a double stream forming an island with a large pond at the base.

Being in the country, surrounded by woods I have a lot of wildlife enjoying my garden.
