    I expect to have my shovel back by the end of the week! I have 2 blue metal spades just like that. They are the greatest until you hit a rock.

    Here is the finished product at the end of day 2. There is still a little landscaping to be done but the client has not decided on the specifics yet.

    I would recommend that you use some larger stone in your ratio calculations. This would help breakup the 'pearl necklace' and give the stream some twist and turns instead of a straight shot.

    Just my .02, nice job though
