The river rock draws so much attention to itself that it detracts from the surround area. Just because some thing is called river rock doesnt mean its appropriat to use in excess, becaus rather than the waterfall being a focal point ur river rock is.
this guy's work is head and shoulders above the pics you pisted.
you call using square cut stones stacked into a wall as your pond perimeter a high end natural looking job?????
however i think the perimeter of the streams should not have a delineated area of rock.running along the sides of the streams i think that plant material , and mulch should be used along the edges.
BUT i think that JD's work is very nice and far superior to jd's.
i really like the pondless waterfalls.
