More Wonderful Water Therapy at Silverock
Everything about Silverock Cove is cool. Down to the last detail. The entire concept was designed around shedding daily stresses and embracing all things lake life, if only for a couple of days a week. The Silverock pool is a favorite spot for relaxing. The infinity edge looking out over the lake, along with the splashing water spilling over the edge, it can be a tranquil little slice of heaven on the lake. Even in the rain, the pool area has its inviting qualities.
Next time there’s a light rain while you’re there, don’t hold yourself up indoors watching the Kardashians, have a seat under the roof overhang, take in the view, and listen to the rainwater trickle down the rain chains. You see, exactly where you’d expect to find a downspout, on the corners of the roof there are Japanese Rain chains. The Japanese have used these polished copper chains for hundreds of years for several purposes. Traditionally used to catch rain water and redistribute for plant watering, they are also much loved for their sparkling beauty and the calming effects of running water. The chains at Silverock are positioned so that the rain water drains into the gravel where the water is distributed naturally running through the rocks to the nearby landscape plants. This of course cuts down on water usage and artificial irrigation costs. Rain chains also prevent harmful erosion, mud splashing and water stains on walkways. And when it’s not raining, they make a soothing soft tinkling sound in the wind.
The rain chains at Silverock are one of the finer details. You may have even walked past them several times before they caught your eye, but they are another example of the attention to detail and collective aesthetic design that draws people to Silverock. And when it comes right down to it, they are simply one more reason to love this place even more.
