This project is a rebuild of an original water feature we had installed in 2005.  It is a 60' waterfall with over 30 ton of moss boulders.  We completely removed the existing water feature and backfilled the space.  We removed all of the flagstone steppers running along the side and re-configured them to match the flow of the waterfall.

With the original feature, the flagstone treads were an existing feature and we simply built waterfall along the existing steps.

Here is a list of the materials we used in this project.
