    Here are some pics of my first waterfall. It was actually a rebuild. The original one was leaking and looked terrible. We pretty much replaced everything... skimmer, biofalls, and built a waterfall. Constructive criticism welcome.

    The black foam looks real natural and your logo looks just like the lawnsite logo. Other than the foam it looks good.

    Isn't the foam supposed to turn natural algea looking? That is what my employee said that has been doing them for 3 years said anyway.

    lot of foam....too much rock....the screen or filter on top of the weir looks a little unnatural... so dos the perfectly flat coping on top of the skimmer.

    i hope thats not too mean as i do like the use of the few big boulders around the feature and the big rock at the bottom of the pond.

    keep plugging away I am starting a small pondless next week and will be hoping for some critique as well...i give you tons of credit for posting and wanting to get feedback... its the only way to truly get better at anything.
