Some nice looking rock there. Thanks for the progress pics Ron. Was there not enough room to set up a small hoe in there for setting the rock? Can't tell from the pics but some areas looked like they might have been a bit tight for a medium sized piece of equipment in there. Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks. Access was a huge problem here. There was only one fence panel we could come through, and that gets you to the top of the falls only. Now that the pond is excavated only a really small mini ex or my dingo can get around to the back side. The crane worked great but at $130 per hour you have to create really fast! It took 4.5 hours to place 11 or 12 tons with just me and a helper and the crane operator. We were using the laser to make sure our falls level worked, and backfilling as we went. It would have been nice to use a mini ex and take a longer time to place and think, but I am pretty happy with the placement. On the pics it just looks like a bunch of random boulders but when we get the small rock and river rock in I think it will end up pretty nice.

Ron, I love the crane shots. They always make for dramatic construction pictures.

Nice Crane! Way to one-up me with your enormous boulders Tim! Just Kidding. Yeah the crane shots are pretty cool. We did some rocking today. Not all rocks in the pic are in their final resting shot.

A true Koi lovers nightmare I am sure.
