    This was one of the first big jobs I did a few years ago.
    It was 25' Waterfall/Stream that fell into a pondless system for one of my first i really thought it turned out nice. This was the one that wanted me to start doing water features only.

    Thanks for your Reply's

    Hey FNC, that looks good. I really like how you used the smaller river rock and only accent rocks. Much better than the normal look. I thought you just got started last summer with your very first feature?

    This was a job i just did for my granny out in east texas to learn how to build waterfalls. So did not charge them for anything. I wanted to make it look a little different with the gravel around the edges rather then all the rock.

    I think i spent around $600 for all the mateials.

    There is nothing worse than a pearl necklace around a pond or stream. The smaller rock you used makes a much better transition. Just tuck some small aquatics or terrestrial plants tight along the edges in a few places to really give it a natural look.

    Hey Cole looks great but what kind of pump you got running on that thing and how often do you got to refill the water? When I do ponds with waterfalls and what not I find the water evaporates so darn fast.
