    Thanks, that is a great compliment. I wish I was up in your area doing this sort of thing. This is actually my fourth water feature on my own. This is by far the largest. I have attended and helped at many pond and pondless builds sponsored by manufacturers.

    I could use some help. I only have one person working for me, and this is his first experience with a water feature.

    I have done a few features trouble is finding good boulder with shape, materials around here are granite and Basalt. They do not have character like sand stone. Your work looks well thought out, where done you get inspiration for them.

    I am not familiar with those terms. It is washed river rock excavated from river beds here in Oklahoma. The smaller stuff is called 1 1/2 inch but it is smaller than I would like. I am going to use a lot of the 2 -4".

    Thanks a lot. Man I wish you were in the midwest, I could use some free labor. Or some paid labor for that matter. My only worker just gave me notice!
