    Excellent rock placement around the pond/bottom of falls. Very natural looking. Man I hate those plastic rocks that cover the skimmer. I'm amazed that no one has come out with a natural looking cover yet. Anyway, really nice work!!!

    Looks great! Ponds really have a way of completing a design imo. . .
    Which ballfield is that in the last picture? - it looks really familiar.

    Really they aren't to bad when you have planting's and more rock placed around them. I usually try to get a nice peace of flagstone to cap them off. In this case I wanted the lighter lid for my customer since she lives by herself.

    Eureka, been there a few times since we used to live just down the freeway in Fenton. Been all over the place and I swear the Fenton area has the crappiest soil in the world. 50% red clay and 50% rock. Give me good ol clay soil out here in California.

    Right at the moment our big concern are the fires, getting close to 200,000 acres and right by LA and probably 2 weeks before they get under control!!

    "FREEWAY" it's a highway here still.:) How long have you lived out there? We have ALOT more crappy soil area's besides Fenton now.

    Hopefully your not close to the Fires.

    We're about 30 miles from the closest big fires but we've been a lot closer like last year when we were maybe 8 to 10 miles away. So we get a lot of smoke and sometimes ashes. UGH! They seem to be under control at the moment.

    Been out year just ovr 10 years. Weather is great but I do miss an ocassional snow. If we really want snow during the winter it's only a 45 minute drive to the mountains, and 35 minutes to the beach!
