Working in the landscape industry allows us to create beautiful features with lots of different types of materials. We are just finishing up this custom Pondless waterfall in Weaverville, NC.
This was a fun waterfall to build and was designed to flow out from under the new deck that we had built. Blending the new deck into the rock work and waterfall.
In order to do this we had to custom cut the stairs into one of our waterfall frame boulders.
At first it seemed like a problem. We didn’t plan to cut the step stringers into the boulder. But after we set the waterfall rocks, we realized the frame boulder was too tall. So we got together with the carpenter and came up with a solution. In the end I think it helped to meld the two features together.
We’ve had the opportunity to use wood, stone and even metal into some of our features. I really love to be able to blend the different materials when possible.
There are lots of options for your water feature projects. So think outside the box and be creative!
Also using ceramics and sculpture can be a fun way to create a water feature or fountain
Give us a call to help you dream up ideas for your next landscape or water feature project.
Today I took a walk with my daughter into the woods to relax, enjoy each other’s company and get into nature.
We ended up balancing some rocks at a popular swimming hole.
It was an amazing time. Taking a day off of work to spend some important time with my daughter.
We started off picking some wild blueberries. Then strolling down to the river, we ate some lunch and enjoyed the waterfalls.
It was a great time. Balancing stone is an amazing meditation and relaxing art form.
When we finished we discussed if we should knock them down or not. We decided to leave them up. Then we hiked up to the top of the waterfall and as we looked down on our rock balancing we saw people hiking in and taking pictures of our work. Then we noticed people engaging with what we did. Some tried to balance their own rocks, one guy balanced a rock on top of ours. It was a beautiful thing.
