We are starting a new Pondless Waterfall in Asheville, NC this week.
This is a very unique job because the site of the waterfall build is 1000 ft downhill from our clients house in the middle of the woods! All the materials for this project will be brought down a system of switchback trails that our client has built over the last 15 years.
We just finished excavation and moving 20 tons of materials down the hill by hand.
It took a couple days of full time work to get all the rock and gravel down the hill.
We also ran into a large rock shelf during excavation. We have no power on site so we decided to use some old school techniques to get the rock out of our waterfall area. Using chisels and hammers we were able to split the shelf into pieces by hand, instead of going to get the generator and jackhammer. It was actually more time efficient to do it this way due to the site access.
We are now ready to build, A little sweat and blood later! But I think the end result will be worth it.
Check back in with us for more project updates.
