July 2017 39 Left: The 443-room Four Seasons Resort Orlando is a Walt Disney World resort in Disney's Golden Oak residential community. EDSA, the planning and landscape architecture firm behind the master plan, designed formal gardens around the Resort Tower, which features 37,500 sq. ft. of event facilities. At the lobby and garden level are restaurants with views of the lake and resort gardens, a fitness center, shops and a spa with gardens. Right: The 4-sided infinity edge fountain in the formal Mediterranean gardens flows over the weirs into a basin. Stainless steel plates structurally support the cast stone, which conceals the fountain basin, allowing water to flow behind the cast stone into a trough. Kusser FountainWorks supplied and installed the granite to ensure the fountain would be absolutely level, which is crucial for a 4-sided infinity edged water feature. The hardscape surround is a chestnut colored natural flagstone locally supplied.
