Some falls are more fun to make than others. Small spaces make more of a chore simply owing to the size and weight of the rocks used. Inasmuch as we use cement on most applications dealing with falls, a small space can be problematic owing to the need to mix the stuff near enough to get to it yet not so far that you drop it on the way and create a mess. Machines are my biggest friend making waterfalls, in particular those mini excavators – or the larger ines for big projects such as the picture below a ways.
But dealing with liners, the construction process itself, getting the rocks just right – its all pretty interesting and challenging. Later, the planting is something I take great pride in, myself. Plants actually complete the process which may have begun with bare dirt but now resemble some mountainside. Below are a few more pictures of falls we’ve done over the years.
This one runs about 600 gallons a minute, lol:
