Backyard Plans

We have been very busy this last week finalizing plans for our backyard. We had always envisioned some sort of water feature on our back hill, but were always unsure how or when to embark on this project. Well, this is the year!!! We found a company that puts in the most amazing waterfalls and, after taking some things into consideration, decided to move forward with the project. So, they started on Thursday putting in this waterfall and pond. We also have a ton of landscaping that will be going in over the next two weeks.

I took a few pictures of the process. So far, they have dug out the placement of the water fall and poured the concrete footing and then shaped the walls of the waterfall and pond.

This is where we are today. It rained all weekend so as soon as it dries out this week they will be back to cover all of the concrete with boulders so that you won't see any of it on the waterfall.

It doesn't look much like the end result now, but I did take a picture of their waterfall at the nursery to give you an idea of what it is suppose to look like in the end:
Again, this is a picture of the waterfall at Frisella's Nursery. Ours is a much smaller scale.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Whoa!!! You guys don't mess around! I can't wait to hear the trickling water and enjoy the view while sitting poolside :).

  2. Oh, how I wish I could have something like this! Wow!! lol, love your cards, too, but it's the waterfall that inspires me!!
