Stone Veneer Asheville

We are in process of creating a custom pondless waterfall for our clients at First Baptist Church Swannanoa.

This is one of the few interior water features we have worked on.

It will be set at the entrance to the kids worship center in the church. I’m excited about working in this project and helping create a fun space for the kids.

The feature was framed into the wall with a raised pondless basin extending out into the room. The pump and filter housing is set in the narrow closet to the right of the feature.

We used an Iron Might 1/15 HP external pump for this feature. It was a tight space to plumb the pump into, but we did it.

We installed a 16 inch Aquascapes metal waterfall spillway into the wall.

Then we lined the feature with EPDM rubber liner. On top of the liner we laid DuraRock with a final waterproof coating on top.

Today we started laying veneer stone on the waterfall basin wall.

We will cap this wall with Gray Crab Orchard flagstone and install Aquablox into the pondless basin.

Check back next week for more progress.

Flagstone Patio Asheville

Here’s a quick video of a mortared flagstone patio we just finished in Asheville.

We used Buff Crab Orchard stone for this project. There was an existing dry laid patio in this space that we replaced and reused some of the stone.

Our goal was to match the existing flagstone entryway and covered porch.

Give us a call for all your patio and landscaping projects.

We just finished this custom outdoor living area in Asheville, NC.

It has a Pondless waterfall that flows from an antique Thai Buffalo Post into a boulder bowl.

Our very talented carpenter installed a custom bench that seamlessly flows into an entryway step.

The dry laid Flagstone patio is tightly cut and matches well with the water feature on one side and the wood bench on the other.

Landscape Ponds Asheville

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a blog post. We have been busy installing ponds and waterfalls in Asheville, Hendersonville, Fletcher and Waynesville.

Here’s a quick update on what we’ve been up to:

Here’s a progress video of our current project. A small Pondless Waterfall in Biltmore Forest, N.C.

We should have the water running soon so check back with us. This waterfall will also have some low voltage landscape lighting and aquatic lighting when we are done building the waterfall.

We also spent a week constructing a custom dry laid walkway for our clients in Asheville.

We spent the end of 2018 working on a lot of fun projects, including ponds, stone patios, Pondless Waterfalls and water features in Asheville, N.C.

Custom, naturalistic water features are our specialty. So we enjoy every chance we get to install them for our clients.

This was a really fun project, building a turtle habitat for our client in Asheville.

It’s a custom stone enclosure with a bubbling fountain and a small pond for the turtles to play in.

We are looking forward to all the exiting water features and landscape projects that 2019 has in store for us!

Thanks

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.
