What you see is only 1/2 the project. Replicate what you see and place it directly to the right of this.........4 falls in all.

I see, yeah I was going to say that has to be tricky getting that liner to work. That thing is going to look great, I hope you have a good sized pump because that will look money with a lot of water flowing down.

No, this is not my house. This is a swimming pool that its dumping into. The pool pump will be feeding this so there will be lots of flow.

Twitchy,
I was going to say the same thing. Todd use more natural stones that are flat, PLEASE.........
As for the rubber under the falls, instead of using silicone and lots of foam, use a termination bar to do most of the sealing. Its what they use in roofing for holing rubber liners.

For sure, the use of term bars with maybe a couple of good dollops of Lap Cement will give you a good seal.

The snow predicted for tomorrow night and saturday is supposed to be a WET snowfall

I've always plowed with 4wd trucks with mud and snow tires. I'm considering selling our F-650 and getting a small dump truck. I'd be curious if you notice any difference in pushing / and controlling the truck (heavy, deep, wet snows somtimes push a 4wd to the side when plowing) with this heavier snow.

Picked up another Bobcat too. This one has pilot controls.
How do you build that small patio and step?

i agree, todd you do good work i have told you that before. But those flaties look like crap. Find a natural flat stone, heck even cobbles would look better. Spend a few days look at pictures of real natural god made waterfalls and try your hardest to replicate them.
