The Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, Ark., features an amazingly realistic composition of stone, plants and water known as “The Garden of the Pine Wind.”  Designed and built by landscape artist David Slawson, the space includes waterfalls organized by three main weir structures that descend 90 feet from top to bottom; a gorgeous stone-arch bridge; and a range of orchestrated streams and pathways all rendered with maximum attention to detail, lines of sight, stone materials and plants.
