Near Future Garden Water Feature
Hampton Court Flower Show Vortex Water Feature – Near Future Garden
Water Feature Specialists, Tills Innovations have triumphed again, designing and engineering a water feature for Gold Award garden ‘Near Future Garden’ at Hampton Court Flower Show 2016. Not having created a water feature for Hampton Court Flower Show for a number of years it was a delight to go back again.
Having demonstrated our talent to Diamond Hill Garden Design before, Arit contacted us with a sketch and brief. “To make oil look like it is pouring into the earth with a vortex please!”
Tills had already created the stunning Volute water feature; a variant on this design would be the key to this success. With the use of black dye the water would take on the persona of oil, give reflections and maximize the movement and character of this water feature design. Once the crucial hydraulics and water introduction system had been designed, the next stage would be to push our expertise….. tweeking the detail, movement and energy of the water to embellish the design ethos that the Near Future Garden was all about, ‘Climate Change’, fossil fuels pouring into the ground.
Once complete Diamond Hill garden design visited our works to see the water feature under test. It was perfect and captured just what the Near future garden is all about.

Wynyard Hall Rill Cascade
Wynyard Hall Rill Cascade and Fountains
Stretching across the new rose garden at Wynyard Hall are four circular pools with fountains and two long rill cascades. The garden which is part of a larger dream of Sir John Hall who owns Wynyard Hall was designed by multi award winning RHS architect Alistair Baldwin.
As the water element in the garden is very significant and forms an integral part of the design, a water feature specialist was needed to realise what was on paper. With multiple pools, fountains and different levels, the required knowledge of creating a large scale commercial water features with all the experience of water conditioning systems and fountain hydraulics was required. Tills Innovations Ltd were the preferred choice.
Working from the outset with both the architect and the landscaper, Swinburne Horticultural Services the water features were created.
More details will be added to the site as a case study in the future.

The walls logo was carried out by Tills Innovations as part of the installation. The steel framing utilizes our proven baffle injection technology to create the rolling wave of water. Lights sit at the base of the water wall and wash up the surface.

Commercial Fountain Design
Based on the dry plaza fountain design, this black granite monolithic fountain has been created by water feature specialist Tills Innovations.
The multiple fountain design is situated at the University of Nottingham in an open space area enjoyed by academics and the public as they stroll by. The design of the commercial fountains uses both natural stone and water movement to enhance the Chinese study building beside.
As an alternative to mirror or reflection pools, the fountain design has a number of simple bubbling fountains, each of which create beautiful concentric circles of rippling water, merging and competing one another. The solid structure gives the fountain a bold presence and to embrace this the fountain design has an infinity water wall effect around the outside.
As part of our complete water feature and fountain services we carry out a maintenance contract on the fountains.
Waters Large Bespoke Stainless Steel Water Wall with 3d Lettering
Commercial stainless steel water wall
This large stainless steel water wall was designed, manufactured and installed by water feature specialist Tills Innovations. The corporate headquarters had in total four bespoke features which were all created and installed by Tills.
This particular design which was 4m tall x 6m wide had 3d lettering stood off the front surface. The way in which it was fitted meant that the words looked like they were levitating over the water movement.
The plant system was designed to be remote from the water feature (15m away) and has our tailored water conditioning system. The fountain pump system is run on an programable inverter which gives the precise water flow required, energy efficiency and works in harmony with our water injection system.
Our design has evolved over many years to create a rolling wave of water down the water wall. This effect is significantly different to simply pouring water over a surface. This water feature is totally mesmerising and a welcoming feature to the entrance of the company.
Carved Bespoke Stone Fountain Sculpture
Turning Circle Fountain Water Feature
Water Feature Specialists Tills Innovations were employed to work with sculptor Harry Gray and create this stone fountain. The unique piece sits on the driveway of a client in Cambridgeshire. The eye catching fountains and the sound draws you to the entrance of this fabulous Grade II listed property. The client is a devoted cricket player and was keen to exploit his love of the sport within this water sculpture. The overall sculpture is dominate within the drive but the reference to the sport is subtle yet comical with the cricket stumps produced by fountains at each end of the feature.
The fountains are simple and produce glass like columns of water that dance in a shallow pool of water. The fountains are created with solid brass nozzles that only just sit above the water line ensuring the water takes full effect. Two types of stone was used by Harry Gray to create the stone sculpture. Dark slate was carved in sections to produce a shallow pool of water that the fountains danced within. This pool once full of water flowed over an infinity edge into a concealed pool below. The water element was then framed in the bold Portland stone around the outside.
The partnership between Tills as the water feature specialists and Harry Gray as the sculptor meant everyone worked very closely to bring the whole water feature together. As part of the fountain conditioning a remote plant chamber outside the drive way was created that housed the pumps, filtration, water top up and UV sterilisation.
Tills carry out service contracts on water features and fountains where the client requires and was provided with this particular water sculpture.
Contemporary Stone Water Feature

Using polished black granite to form the background of the water fall and also to clad around the reservoir created a clean lined water feature. The bespoke water chute was made to create a sheet of water that was transparent complementing the mirror effect of the stone. The water feature situated on a garden roof terrace in London was designed and installed by water feature specialists Tills Innovations. Due to it being fitted on the roof top the feature was designed so it could be carried in parts the patio area.
Tills Innovations supplied the complete water feature package including the pump system and installation as part of a landscape designers package.

Working with a landscaper / designer, water feature specialists Tills Innovations created the commercial water feature. Due to the quick turn around required the water feature and fountains were engineered and built off site and then installed on site in a very tight time frame.
The custom made piece has water running down the front and back of the stainless steel wall for dual aspect. To gain additional focal interest and branding of the development the water wall has a sleek black logo and 3D stainless steel shield. For increased drama and impact the water wall has two commercial style aerated fountains. The pump system for the water feature has level switches for low level protection.

A bubble fountain effect appears at the top of the sphere. The fountain flow provides a wave of water over the outside of the stone sphere creating an interesting and educational focal point for the children at the school.
With our commercial fountains we offer designs that include fresh water top up systems, filtration and chemical dosing systems. These are options which should be considered for all fountains but certainly commercial applications where it should be considered carefully.
Tills Innovations as water feature specialists can take your hand through all these considerations to provide your required result.
Large Bespoke Commercial Stainless Steel Water Walls – Caledonian University
Large commercial stainless steel water wall
These large water walls were created as a custom design for the Caledonian University in Glasgow. The original design intent given to Tills Innovations was for the water walls to be one even larger water wall. This concept can be over powering in some situations and having two albeit still large walls can give more interest to the overall focal point.
Each of these two stainless steel water walls are custom made to 3.8m wide x 2m high and have an led lighting system operated by a DMX controller. The lighting system washes up the wall and picks out the rolling wave of water down the water wall. The two large water walls sit in one common bespoke reservoir that has filtration, water top up and a manual chemical dosing, although automated chemical dosing is normally taken for our commercial applications.
Stainless steel water walls have been used for a number of years and for good reason. They provide a fantastic way of taking water and producing stunning effects. With a large size they make a bold statement inside or outside for corporate companies, business entrances to prestigious housing and apartment developments.
