Here is one that we did. Really easy, and cheap. we used the aquascape aqua basin for ours. We also hung a landscape light from the pergola over it> Very nice accent peice.

Here are a few smaller ones from way back. Funny you should ask about a book. I am actually about halfway through writing a book on building waterfeatures the professionals way, which I hope to get published in 09.

That is awesome Tim! I will buy the book, especially if you put a shot of one of my features in it. (As long as it is not used as an example of bad design) I am still trying to plug you for a seminar at our big wholesale pond distributor.

I really do believe you could have great success with a well written, well photographed book on professional water feature design. There really is no good product out there right now. Good luck!

Hey Guys this may be a dumb question but what size bits are you using or are you core drilling these? They look really good.

Core drilling. Usually between 1.5" to 2.5" depending on desired water volume and effect. Just remember on soft rock such as sandstone you will want to sleeve the cored out boulder with pvc or poly pipe to prevent excessive errosion over time.

Really like the natural stone bubbling rocks. Those faux rocks just don't do it for me.
