    Custom water feature

    During the first COVID lockdown in 2020 we landscaped our yard, my wife was pregnant at the time so we werenít really doing much. Iíve always loved water features, I find the sound very zen. So I found a space in my new backyard and decided Iíd give building one a go. First step was drawing it up on sketch up and getting the wifeís approval, that went better than expected. Second I poured a reinforced pad and framed up the structure, I roughed in the plumbing after that. Itís sheathed in 3/4Ē OSB and covered in ship lap cedar. Reservoir is lined with pond liner. Powering the 3 spillways is a 3/4 hp pool pump (each spillway needs 1000 gph). Iím not sure why I didnít post this, I absolutely love how it turned out, really adds the the backyard.

    I know what you mean I just had to quickly toggle the screen when my wife popped in to ask about dinner.

    Fabulous job on that. I can almost hear it via the pics.
    Take me to the hotel - Baggage gone, oh well . . .
