    Anyone know where I can find info on building faux boulders? I am talking about the ones used to create waterfalls next to pools, etc. I think they are made of concrete. I would love to learn to do this. Also any info on pricing?

    I too would like to learn more about constructing these things but for some reason, there seems to be a lot of secrecy surrounding the process. If it is proprietary then... OK, that explains that.

    One company offers the training classes but it is expensive when it seems like a couple of how-to library books would do the trick.

    Let me know if you come up with anything.

    I know this isn't exactly what you were looking for but this may give you some ideas.

    I had some other links at one time, showing some step by step building instructions and materials but I can't seem to find them now. I'll keep looking and try to post them.

    Thanks for the info. Bought a book on one website. Think I will experiment a little on small projects for myself to see if this is feasible for me. If anyone else has info do share, especially if you are doing this already.:walking:
