This is the picture of the rock pond. It measures 4 feet x 4 feet and 12 inches deep. It holds about 35 gallons. of water. It is designed to go in or above the ground. The pond and runners are called natural stone.
WHAT IS NATURAL STONE?
It's a super strong, marine grade fiberglass bonded to a real, crushed rock surface. No paints or dyes is used. Natural Stone rockes weather and age very much like a real rock.These stones are made and shipped to America from Germany.

WE liked the small waterfall so much that we decided to put in a much larger one in the very back of the yard. The following pictures will show step by step of the large waterfall going in.
This picture shows what we started with. An ugly block wall, 5 feet high, and 50 feet long. This is another place where it was hard to get anything to grow because of the block wall, there is a lot of cement and not much dirt.
The hardest part about any job, is where to get started. This picture shows us standing around thinking where to put this large pond.
This pond measures 6 feet wide, 9 feet long, 20 inches deep at the deepest end and 12 inches deep at the shallow end. It holds about 125 gallons of water, and is designed to go into the ground.
This picture shows how we are getting everything lined up in the center of the block wall. At this point, we have dug up the ground and added some blocks for the design.
This picture shows we have added some more dirt to install the pond and added more blocks to hold the dirt.
We took out the 2- 4x4 poles and replaced them with metal poles to make the wall stronger. And we added more blocks to the front wall to hold more dirt.
This is a better picture of the over all project. The metal poles are installed every 6 feet to hold the frame of the wall.
Here we added 4x8 sheets of plywood to the frame to attach the walls to.
This shows the wall starting to go up. These sections of walls come in sheets of many different sizes and shapes. They range anywhere from, 5'x5' to 4'x12', etc. This part is like putting a puzzle together. This way you can design the wall the way you want it to look and no 2 walls will look the same.
This shows the center part of the wall with the waterfall sticking out. Also here we have added more dirt and large boulders to give the look of a real mountain area.
