Well building a waterfall isn’t as simple you would think! Or at least building one big enough for people to be photographed both IN and around isn’t as simple as you’d think. Because once you realize the scale of the project you then realize how much dirt has to be dug, moved, arranged…and the size of the liner needed…and the rocks – or rather, BOULDERS you need to give it the right presence. You see I didn’t want a little waterfall…I asked for one that would be safe enough, and cool enough, and of the right SCALE for people to be photographed around, in front of, IN and more. It was a tall task, but Wildwood Landscape was up for the job – and they have yet to disappoint me on any part of this project. From concept to production so far I’m in seventh heaven on this project.
I know it’s hard to perceive the real scale of the scene from the little photos I’m tweeting and putting on Facebook from the phone as it goes, so here are a few that I hope help convey the right scale to all. The pond has ledges built all around it to given seating areas for clients to be in the water – and actually to be IN the waterfall of the water too. And since it’s all filtered water, it’s a pretty “cool” experience, LOL.
You can get a good idea of how large these rocks are in the images with Jacob – he’s my project manager at Wildwood and he seems to be enjoying this process as much as I am (as a matter of fact I’m having a hard time getting the grin OFF my face these days). If you still can’t “get” the scale you’ll just have to come out and see the finished project for yourself!
Here are just a few of the highlights from today:
Again, if you are looking for a landscape company – give Wildwood Landscape a call and let them show you how they can take what you have and make it even better!
