    Hey guys, been awhile since I posted anything. For this job the customer wanted the stream to run under the sidewalk. So we took out a section of the sidewalk and cut a piece of flagstone to fit in where we took the sidewalk out. I still need to add a light under the flagstone and mess with the right spill rock on the top waterfall to get more flow off it. We'll throw in plants in the spring. Sorry for all the pics.

    Here's a before picture:

    Some afters:

    Sorry about all the pics :)

    That looks great, also an oppurtunity to sell the homeowner on more lights running up the sidewalk. I could only imagine some kid falling in on halloween, and the way people put their hands out looking for a free check... Nice work!

    Thanks everybody.

    Actually I was contemplating whether or not to put in a couple pathway lights. When their house lighst are on (They aren't on in the pictures) they actually light up the entry nicely so it's easy to see but I still like the idea.

    Looks GREAT to me. Talk about curb appeal. Now they need a pond in the back and patio to enjoy.

    I like everything, but in a few years those spruce (Looks like spruce to me, but either way...a tall growing evergreen) will be too big and block the view of the house. I would have went with something that would stay smaller. If those are spruce, they will be easily 15' wide at the base.

    That is bad a$$... I like how it goes under the slab and the lights, esp at night.
