Pebble mosaic looks great under water, making
the colours of the pebbles more brilliant. In pools, Maggy likes
to emulate the effect of a rock pool, with shallow water of perhaps
50mm depth; safe for children & small animals. Cascades are
another attractive option, where the ripples made by the water falling
over the surface of the mosaic adds lively, sparkling animation
to the scene.
technical design & installation of pools & cascades requires
the expertise of specialist contractors. One point to mention is
that all systems require superior filtration & a method of dosing
with chemicals to eliminate the growth of algae, which would otherwise
spoil the effect. Unfortunately, this means that the construction
& plant required can be very expensive.
