    Hi Everyone,
    Well, Like I stated before I was going to undertake a two raised ponds with a waterfall and 2 fountains. This a project I am going to do with little or no help from my husband or any of our employees. Doing it in my spare time. What little I have. I will be looking for advice as I get into areas I am not sure about and would love any advice from the experts as this project progresses. I will add pictures as I progress thru the job.
    First picture is of me starting the layout process.

    I read about using a hose as a layout but I still think it is hard to get an ideal on how it will look

    See even a girl knows how to secure a load to make DOT happy. I did have to go thru a DOT check point the day I picked the stones up. Now problems the officer was nice.

    Now, Even with all that hose layout, I still had problems with what it will look like so, only one thing to do, Lay the stones down and see what it will look like. I know its alot of extra work but i am not in a hurry.

    Boy the stones get heavy moving them back and forth, It doesnt help having a smart a$$ photographer making his comments. :angry:
