Good call, I forgot that the 2gal Leylands grow slower!

We just got back to work at my house. We got 2' of snow and we can finally see the ground again but its soaked + an inch of rain = mess. We poured the concrete for the footer Friday and we started the block today. We'll finish the block tomorrow and then I've got to pick out my stone. The pond is the same as in the pictures, at the moment. Just need things to dry up a bit and thankfully we're looking at more nice weather tomorrow.

Wow! A pool site that actually lends itself to have a waterfall, no volcanus eruptus waterfall. Should look great!

Thats actually all soil from the pool excavation. For some reason the customer didn't want it hauled out and I don't know where he thinks its going to go.........not my project.

The feature will consist of two streams, sourced about 15' apart. Each stream will split and create a total of 4 waterfalls into the poo. The feature is about 15' deep and 30' wide.

Nice size project. Use a short heavy duty( +10,000lbs) lifting strap & forks to move the boulders around, makes life easy. Nice to see people spending money...

4 waterfalls! Take lotsa pics, (I know you will!) I want to do a mini version of that right off my patio somewhere, thinking about 1 fall and a real small "cocktail" pool...
