    With the slowdown, looks like I am going back into landscaping and of course waterfall construction. Now, I just need to find someone to work for. Could be a tough task to find a company nowdays. I am excited though. I have missed building waterfalls and hardscapes.

    Had to take some ice picks on our coldest morning of the year. About 7 degrees this morning.

    Hey Venture,

    How do pumps and water feature hold up to below freezing temperatures? Are you able to keep the fall running even as the water starts to freeze with no problems?

    Your friend,

    The water features all of you guys do look great. They look like they have always been there. I love rock work, water features but I dont get to do much.

    What size and type of excavators are you guys using to move such large boulders or larger boulders?

    I don't think a bobcat 331 or the comparable size Takeuchi will move those size boulders in the pictures presented

    Love the pictures. Thanks for the info.

    I like to use between 8000-14000 lb. excavators.

    Nice big boy rocks!. Would love to see a finished photo with the large verticle rocks. any suggestions where to purchase large stone and boulders other then landscape supply centers?

    You guys should all be proud of your work and thank you for sharing.
