Construction of Pgh Stone's largest pondless waterfall to date

This waterfall was a commercial aplication in the Pittsburgh area. It is 30' in length, 20' in height, has 3 waterfalls with an average width of 6'. The basin area is 12'L x 7'W x 4' D. I used an Atlantic system (as always), and it took us about 6 days.

Great job

Any pics of the entire project? What size of excavator did you use to set the stones? Great looking waterfall, hope your business is still doing well in this economy.

Thank you for the compliments. I actually started working a 3d design program over the winter that helped me sell the project. This was the first 3d rendering I did and is cartoonish, but helped with visualization for the customer.

It wasn't that bad. I've been working off of steep hillsides with that machine for about 10 years. Once you get confident, sky's the limit...
