Hey guys, did this pondless over this past weekend. The home owner plans on doing the plantings and also lighting. (I know, I wish he would let me do at least the lights but oh well.) I think it came out pretty nice.

Here's a before pic.

Excellent job. One of the more 'natural' looking waterfalls. Too bad he isn't letting you do the lighting and plants.

That looks GREAT!!! Wish you could get rid of those cable boxes though. I HATE those damn things...

Just in the ground...you have to refill it every time you want a waterfall. Really time consuming if you ask me. Haha.

I would have a little concern with the roots from the tree taken out and the close neighbors large tree in the background.

Nice pics and the Nikon is a great camera. I have a Canon xti. What setting do you use?

If you were wondering ashgrove he's joking about the refilling comment.

There were a few roots but nothing the excavator couldn't handle. I put underlayment down under the liner as well in case any roots decided to pop up.

I'm not even sure what setting it's on, I just lower the shutter speed to make the water blurry. It needs to be on a tripod though.

Here's a picture from their deck. The trench is for a power outlet. The river rock is just dusty, it's not white.

sweet job. In the last photo was that off a deck? If so I would have turned it alittle bit but I see the elecric box, so I guess you can not turn it that much. I hope my wife does not see this photo, she will have me doing one at our house.

Thanks man. Yeah that picture was from the deck but the homeowners were persistant that they can see it from their patio that's under the deck. The patio goes quite a ways back behind where I was standing when I took the picture.

Put a nice laceleaf maple in front of the box and it will cover cable box! Great work!

I second that Laceleaf. What type of pump and basen did you use.

Great work! I need to learn how to do that one of these days.

I wanted to do a maple but the homeowner is doing the planting. I will be there tomorrow and hopefully he has done something to it.

The pump is a Monsoon 10,000 gph pump. For the basin I just used matrix boxes and a sump pump basin for the pump.

Can you buy and apply the moss onto stone somewhere? I have that boulder that I would like to grow some on

I am not sure if you can or not. I have heard that you can poor flat beer on rocks and it promotes the growth of moss. I have never tried it though.

Thank you. I have them saved on my phone actually in case someone wants to see them on the spot.
