The trapezoidal water basin made of Corteen steel forms the central element of the garden. The fountain is fed via the steel water wall, from where the water flows through the basin into the gravel-filled overflow channel. The resulting Plätschernschafft a pleasant atmosphere, which is why directly adjacent to the large wooden terrace with garden furniture is arranged.

A half-high clinker wall, which leans in color to the facade, separates the garden visually from the neighboring property. Fruit trellises entwine along this wall, which can be harvested in late summer. In the rear part of the garden a further seat niche on a gravel surface was planned, in order to be able to enjoy sun at each time of day.

For garden tools and bicycles is place in the, with wooden slats formatively co-ordinated with the Carport, garden pavilion, at whose back wall also the firewood can be stacked up dry.
Plantwise the garden is coined by plum thorn hedges and a grass bed in the center of the garden. A large lawn makes the small garden seem spatially larger.
