I have been working on this project for the past two summers, and finally it is complete (nearly). I am trying to get some better pics. The colors are little washed out in these pics; however, there are only subtle color variations in the hypertufa mics I tried. Please let me know your comments

The water fall is about 4 feet high and feeds a pond approxiamtely 9 by 6 feet and holding 600 gallons of water.

WOW Very Nice. How long did that take!?

RE: Finally, the water falls!!

So, You made that out of Hypertufa, or papercrete?

Will both stand up to water????

I am brand spankin' new at this, forgive me.


RE: Finally, the water falls!!

The pond was finished last summer, along with the waterfall. The sides of the waterfall were done this summer. I really lost count of the number of days I spent on this ! (Several months, over weekends and evenings).
The "mountain" is really a shell made of rebars bent and covered with metal lath.
Over this, I applied burlap coated in cement (learned the technique from 'fake rock' ideas posted elsewhere on this site). Finally, I applied
Different combinations of hypertufa. I wish I knew how to get more vibrant colors !!. The waterfall itself is liner covered with rocks, sand, and concrete. I also made some troughs
For the plants.

Thanks for the nice comments.

This looks great! I want to see more pictures... close ups..... different angles, ,,, around the back,,,,, the sides,,,,, etc.
Is there any chance you have time to add some more photos?

When you say you wish you could make more vibrant colors of hypertufa... are you willing to paint the finished product or do you want the colors to be part of your mix when you apply it?
thanks, Laura
