Atlantis Water Gardens Builds A Fountainscape For Sandy Victims In Point Pleasant NJ
Jaak Harju from Atlantis Water Gardens was contacted by John Colaneri from the Cousin's Undercover show on HGTV to build a custom fountainscape in Point Pleasant NJ. The home belongs to Jonathan Miller and Megan Baglivio. Miller, the captain of the Point Pleasant First Aid and Emergency Squad, bought the home and renovated the building in the summer before Hurricane Sandy floodwaters ruined the renovations.
Ellen Degeneres caught wind of their story, and was the sponsor to have their home completely re-built by the "Cousins". The episode aired on both shows, unfortunately there is not an online version of the Cousin's show.
John came up with a cool idea to install a beautiful fountainscape water feature in an unused corner of the small courtyard, at the last minute of course ! Part of being a involved with filming a TV show like this is dealing with ridiculously tight deadlines and overcrowded working conditions. It's a real challenge but all part of the fun of helping to create a great TV show.
John challenged us with this tight space (and an even tighter deadline!), so we worked for 2 days into the late night to complete this trio of stacked slate urns with a Moss Rock Waterfall surround. Everything is highlighted with underwater LED lighting for a great nighttime effect, which was a good thing because the reveal was done in the late hours which really got a fantastic reaction from the Miller's!
A Lasting Relationship With The Cousins
Since the completion of the Hurricane Sandy project, John and Anthony have asked us to build water features for 2 other shows. We are looking forward to a lasting relationship with these 2 great guys, and many more chaotic, made for TV Water Gardens!
FINALLY! A Show About Ponds!
We love building water features with guys like John and Anthony, but inevitably our creations take a back seat to the overall scope of the show which usually includes interior, patios, gazebos and other outdoor accessories.
Starting September 5, 2014, NAT GEO WILD is debuting the premier of Pond Stars, a show about the thing we love the most. PONDS!
