Air well needs help!
December 27, 2012 in Design Dilemma
Hi, I have an air well which is the main reason why I got this place. I have converted that space into an indoor pond, which is absolutely beautiful but extremely difficult to maintain. After 4 years of endless problems (including my busy travel schedule makes it difficult to maintain when I am away), I have decided to drain it and perhaps convert it into an indoor garden. An 'indoor garden' would mean a flat space with artificial grass (there is minimal direct sunlight that comes through the air well hence minimal real plants is preferred and a dining place - Japanese tatami style dining, but in this case, people sitting on 'grass' instead of tatami. My friend said good idea but may be difficult for my 70 year old mom who will be moving in with me, to get up and down in such dining style. By the way, my current dining place is just next to the pond (please see picture) which I will later convert into a room for my mom. So many considerations but I am open to ideas - even just a simple water feature without grass in the airwell area. As you can tell, I am confused!
