waterfall rebuild

I had a client call and asked me to come out and look at his waterfall that another company had done because he just wasn't satisfied with it. It came out of a natural hillside down to his patio. He wanted it redone but the wife didn't so we had to rebuild it on a shoe "string budget" or i should say a "wife budget". All in all it turned out pretty good the homeowner was supplying all the stone so I didn't have much to work with. Gotta love these kind of jobs... sometimes !

This is a prime example of proper rock placement.

You used (I presume) the same rock and turned a boring, drainage ditch stream into a captivating series of cascades. It is all in the eye, my friends.

Great job!

Thanks all, like most of the country this one had to be built in the rain it took two days to do, nothing like hauling stone by cart and hand up and down a wet slope. God i hate rain this year!!!!
