We have done SO much work in our yard over the past 20 years!
But along came kids and our time (and energy) is gone and we never got to the beautiful rock waterfall/bridge area we dreamed of!
This corner was originally a pile of rocks which we covered with soil and made a rock garden with the intent of creating a water feature at some point.
For Mother's Day a few years ago, I received a pretty wood arch bridge to put at the top of the fall. Never happened. The corner is now completely overgrown and in need of a new layout, plantings, everything.
Please help us get our waterfall so I can use my bridge! And maybe a firepit with a seating area. ... :)
Aquascape Designs of St. Charles offers the following suggestions with a budget of $2,000 to $5,000:
A natural waterfall created with moss rock boulders will bring the sight and sound of running water to this backyard. Butterflies, birds and frogs will flock to the waterfalls to enjoy refreshment. A few twists and turns of the water will invite onlookers to explore every nook and cranny. The homeowner's bridge can be used to transverse the waterfalls, allowing them to sit and dangle their feet into the cool water on a hot summer's day. The addition of waterfall lights will allow the family to enjoy the water feature well into the evening.
Specific suggestions include:
1) Aquascape Pondless Waterfall System (includes pump, plumbing, biological and mechanical filters).
2) Moss rock boulders, creating a very natural effect.
3) Waterfall lights for extended nighttime viewing.
4) IonGen electronic water clarifier to reduce maintenance.
