    It will include a small stack stone wall, but reguardless they will get charged for a full day w a 3 man crew. Cant make money charging for 3/4 of a day.

    I want to incorporate a tennesse stack stone wall, but i need river rock as my pondless aggregate. I was going to try to break up the two by planting green giant lariope between the wall and the river rock bed. Thoughts? What kind of water loving ground cover would eventually cover the river rock? Asaitic jasmine? Fig ivey? The last waterfall i did the fig ivey softened the stone, but it wasnt so close to the water.

    Just a question but how many water features have you done? There is no way a bubbler water feature should take 3 guys to build.. one guy four hrs max if you know wat you are doing.. thats y ur bitchn bout component prices cut the number of guys in get quality parts.

    Why would you want any ground cover to cover the river rock. All it will do is hinder the water flow to the pump and quickly clog the entire system with root mass.
    I am truly wondering now exactly how much experience you have constructing Water Features.

    The last bubbler waterfall I did. I used a vault on this one and piped in an autofill. Nothing special, but it was a $500 urn that the landscape architect spec'd in!

    This is a waterfall into a pool we, I know the rocks on the top need rearranging. I always struggle with how to make that look more natural.
