    This is a job we just did. 40 tons of boulders, 2 waterfalls and an embedded slide. the guy wanted a cave or grotto, but settled for a monster natural rock waterfall setup.

    Rock placement looks great! Slide looks like a cheapo though!

    its actually pretty expensive. its called a wild ride slide and its about 7 ft tall and very well built. I have a piece of sh!t slide at my house and this one is alot more substantial. it is buried in the dirt and we have moss rock steps going up to it.

    loop loc pool cover core drilled into the rocks. took 5 days. it was 150 yards of fill, 40 tons of moss rock, a few yards of river gravel, 2 aquascapes waterfall (6500 and 2500) and the slide. someone else did the patio and we got the job from the pool builder. we are bidding on the planting against his LCO, so I am hoping we get that job also.
