At the October meeting of the Holden Beach Beautification Club Josh Rickards, owner of Creative Cascades in Wilmington showed members how to add a water feature to their yard that also harvests and stores rainwater. Josh shared a slideshow of some of his beautiful creations with the group.
A small feature for a home garden can be made for $300 to $500 and a large commercial one can cost $25,000 or more. He also talked about better methods of capturing rainwater which can be used not only for the fountain but for other household water needs. He uses this type of underground method when designing and building the water features. This makes the water features both beautiful and environmentally friendly.
The Club is getting ready for Festival By the Sea. The Art Committee has created some gorgeous pieces to sell and club members are needed to man the booth during the weekend.
