Similar to one of those hand-held-slide-puzzles-with-one-square-missing (what are they called?), except it's a bit bigger and you need a powerful motor and some cleverly wired pulleys to rearrange the blocks.
If you want to move the water feature to the bottom of the garden, simply perch yourself
in a big tree and manipulate the wireless handheld puzzle controller and the garden will follow suit.
