Soothing Landscaped Waterfall

July 15, 2013

Oops! It’s been two weeks since I last posted. Sigh. What can I say?…life happens…nuff said…:)

Have you ever wanted to build a waterfall in your yard?

I may be a bit biased, but I think this is absolutely beautiful! Why biased? Because this waterfall was built by my son. He works for Quality Outdoor Design, a local landscape business. He built the waterfall as a display outside the store. QOD also happens to be where I locally sell my crafts and creations.

Unfortunately I can’t tell you how he did it, but there are a few things he told that I thought were very interesting.

Check out the bigger rocks. The ones that are gray in color. They are not real! I believe they create the form of the waterfall. How cool is that!

He laid a design of mulch around the waterfall (and under it? before he started building).

I love the contrast of the different types and colors of the ground cover.

I have no idea how he hooked up the fountain thingy, but I love the way the water trickles down the center of the rocks.

The rest of the rocks are real. They were used to build, beautify and hide the edges of the “not real” rocks, and the mechanics and structure around the edges.
