    I just attended a 2 day advanced waterfall build. 2 or 30 ton of large moss boulders, 20,000 gph. Water originates from a "wetlands" that will be planted, and splits into 2 separate falls. It rained hard half of the first day. It was amazing how large a project this was to be completed in 2 days. Helps to have a bunch of guys there that basically know what they are doing, and some really good lead designers.

    I learned a ton about placing large boulders to achieve a natural look.

    Here are a couple of more views. It will look much better when the landscaping is finished and the water clears up. Still very nice though.

    Oh and what else as far as equipment did you use.It had to be a rather large machine to move those stones

    Nice job. Very good utilization of the large boulders.
