    Well My parents just acquired a bunch of mountain stone. My mom has a existing pond right now and she wants to use the mountain stone to make a waterfall. The fall doesn't need to be very big just a little to medium one. She is the expert on the pond, all I do is cut grass and yard work. So any comments, ideas or criticisms welcome. Pics are included below.

    Hey Trevor-

    If your looking to build an excellent waterfall for your parents your gonna need some BIG (character) boulders. If you build a waterfall with small rocks it just aint gonna look natural!!! I would suggest getting a biological filter, Aquascape Designs has a do it yourself line, Nursery Pro, that is a resonable price. Heres the link:

    Heres a pic of what i mean by the character boulders, something to work with to channel the water down to the pond.
    I have some more pictures of my pond. Cant remeber where though.
    Good luck. Let me know if you got any more ?s
