    Looks a bit too "cemented"for my tastes.But not bad at all.There is a book that will help you out on rock placement that is exellent I think you would really like it it's called
    Natural Stonescapes,the Art and Craft of Stone Placement.
    BY Richard L. Dub'e,ALPD and Fredrick C. Cambell.
    It tells you all about placement and angles and angles of site ect.Easy to understand with pictures and some patterns of placements also.Get it you won't regret it!I found mine at Amazon .com

    On average size how long does it take, and what would something like that run a customer? Looks like a lot of detail and patience go into these projects.

    the As (aquascapes) pond or "kit pond" can be done in a day or so, Some of the ponds that i have shown take a little longer because they are all cemented in place, the waterfalls and bordering rocks. The As ponds are loose or held in place with spray foam.
    Price ranges from 6-12k of the ponds i have shown, im on the cheap side for my area too.

    If the ponds sell for 6-12k, what do the materials generally run. I see that Aquascapes has kits from $900 to almost $3k. Which kits do you use and how much do the rock and plants generally run? Also, how many guys does it take to do it in a day or so? Thanks!
