Actually, the first time I saw a moving Shishi Odoshi (Japanese for "Deer Scarer") bamboo fountain was when I was 9, at a local nursery. Not only was it beautiful sitting alongside a pebbled handmade pond, it had a profound impact on the deer as I couldn't see any, in metropolitan Melbourne, for miles.
It was towards the end of last year, when I was down the back admiring some of dad's bamboo, I remembered again that display fountain and thought it would make a great feature set amongst this landscape. So I went back to the local nursery ... and they were discontinued, then I tried the Internet..."Your search returned 0 items" - and so I decided to make my own!
Now Bamboo Grove's bamboo water features are handmade, quality tested and products of Australia!
So whether you are creating a Japanese Garden for your family or interested in gaining some tranquility handmade for your home - we are confident you will find something within our selection to relieve stress, soothe the atmosphere and (because of our prices) enjoy greater prosperity.
