Looks very nice. Love the stream and natural flat rock for your waterfall. Looks like you filled in with some nice plants, giving it a woodsy appeal.

Perhaps the only thing that I personally might address – at least in my opinion, for whatever that’s worth - is the stacked rock, or “wall” look around the pond. This can be used to your advantage though, by carefully selecting a type of trailing ground cover that can cascade down the side of these stones. This would break up the rock wall look, and even when the water isn’t flowing, the plants just in themselves would add color, life, and a vertical dimension to a static background.

Thanks for the advice. That is something we are definitly looking into although i must say that the pictures because of the coloring doesnt do it justice, the "wall" isnt as solid/in ur face as it appears in the picture.

Looks Good, Did you foam the rocks in so if a kid or animal gets on the wall in won't fall?

There is actually a pretty significant step back in the wall, so we didnt think the foam was nessecary...thats for the input

Some constructive criticism...make it look more natural. You will never see a natural waterfall in a landscape setting with stacked stones. Don't be afraid to use a variety of different sized stones.
