Healing Garden Grotto

Creative Ponds & Landscapes is a pond & landscape design & installation company specializing in ponds, waterfalls, pondless waterfalls, fountains, assorted water features, low voltage landscape lighting & landscaping in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis & St. Paul, Minnesota and surrounding area.

This artificial rock water feature was constructed in the Spring of 2001 as a joint project with Custom Aquatics Inc. It was part of a large healing garden installed at Ridgeview Hospital in Waconia, MN. The many design facets involved in this artificial rock grotto would have been difficult to achieve with real stone. Six individual stones were constructed to form the shape of a crescent moon, each stone produces a uniform, dripping curtain of water.

A bench allows visitors to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of the healing garden grotto. The finished grotto produces a crescent shaped curtain of water as it falls from the individual stones.

The grotto garden was designed to be viewed and enjoyed from the hospital above as well as from below. The crescent shape of the grotto is very prominent when viewed from above.
