    It's creative and someone spent a good deal of time with it, however I don't care much for the rambling nature of it.
    No focal point in my mind..........

    It does look like good work other than that though............

    Very art-y, likely very labor-intensive to accomplish. Although it's not the sort of stonework I prefer, I like it better than the "Slide Creek Estates" home behind it. Ticky-tacky (Malvina Reynold's song, "Little Boxes" comes to mind.)

    Kind of a guady design....looks like it belongs at a miniature golf course or something

    Hmmm Maybe we are to used to seeing things square and plumb, kept looking for the squared corners. ;)
    It does look different. Fits in with the name of the place.

    I love it except for the weird snake rock that is waving between the river rocks. If you'd remove those rocks that would really look cool! Still doesn't look bad. But the waves detract from it.

    I suspect that the 'weird snake rock' is supposed to represent Slide Creek (as in Slide Creek Estates). Although likely only the locals have any idea what Slide Creek is or if it meanders as depicted in the stonework.
