Rock By Rock

The upper course is closer to done.





















Nice flow.





















Below, the Almighty Falls are rising.





















No matter how it turns out, it will be monolithic. That is a feat in itself.





















The rocks are staying put with me gently climbing the falls and several test runs.





















Inching higher.





















There is just no wiggle room in the falls. All that water needs to stay inside the lines and I am caught between a giant smooth boulder with a downward slant and vertical stretches of rubber liner that will be hard to hide.





















This is going to be tricky.





















I can come back to it later after I fester over it bit. There is the main bidy of the stream to build and a pond to finish.





















So I couldn't wait and moved the falls a jump to the left with a higher channel wall beneath the liner.





















A nice push away from the giant smooth boulder. Now how will I hide that vertical stretch of liner on the right? Before, I was thinking a good chunk of it would be hidden by falling water.





















Nice flow. I just need to keep it inside the lines. That first drop is going to take some fiddling.

My main rule at this point is no rubber liner will be cut until I am satisfied the flow is going to stay inside the lines.

This project is wearing me out just looking at it. I can imagine how you feel. It is going to be fabulous when finished.
