Passion for Water
Guides a Landscaper's Career
reasons for incorporating water in a home garden
are as many and as varied as the gardeners themselves.
Steve Ingraham understands all of these reasons.
He has been a passionate "water shaper"
for 15 years, and has focused his landscape career
on the design and creation of water features. Last
year he joined Artist Garden Stoneworks LLC where
creating artistic gardens are a way of life. Ingraham
says all aspects of the natural world appeal to
him. Incorporating a natural feel to any garden
space is always his goal, and natural spaces almost
always need to have water included. Ingraham will
share his passion with members of the St. Louis
Water Gardening Society at its meeting May 28,
at 7 p.m. in the Beaumont Room of the Missouri Botanical
Garden. This will be the LAST Tuesday
in May. Ingraham's talk is titled "Disappearing
Water." He will cover ideas for pondless waterfalls
and flower bed fountains, and will discuss using
a rainwater recovery system as a disappearing water
reservoir. All are welcome! Come and join the discussion!
