Pondless Waterfall Stone

Here’s a short time lapse video of us moving and setting a waterfall stone on our current Pondless Waterfall project in Asheville, nc.

The site is difficult to access and all materials need to be brought down to the job site by hand.

Check back soon for more updates on this project.

Pondless Waterfall Excavation

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.

Boulder Benches for Fire Pit

Here is a quick video showing how we move rock in tight spaces/ existing landscapes when we can’t use a machine or dolly.

This boulder we are moving here is approx. 1000# and will be used as a seat for the fire pit we just installed for our clients in Weaverville, NC

We use plywood and 2 inch PVC pipe to move the rocks. Once the rock is on the wood and pipes it can be moved and placed with ease.

This is a very old technique for moving rock and can be time consuming, but it is worth the time when you can get large custom boulders to a feature that is hard to access.

Here is the finished fire pit with the boulder benches roughly placed.

We will set the boulders and finish around them with flagstone to complete the area.

This project also includes, a sunken hot tub and a custom water feature to make an incredible outdoor living space.

Give us a call for your next landscaping project.

Fire Pit Construction

We just finished this outdoor fire pit in Weaverville,Nc.

0028900B-DD8F-4076-BF89-8387E93804CF

We set this fire pit on a concrete slab that will be an extension to the existing flagstone patio.

We formed the fire pit with concrete cap blocks placed in a 3 ft circle. We then anchored them to the slab using rebar and wire.

We then faced the blocks with stone and capped it with Bluestone.

We set the fire pit to be centered on the patio to allow for amazing views and to be close to the new hot tub we installed.

We will finish around the fire pit with flagstone and boulder benches.
