After receiving a call from this Client that there concrete pond was leaking we set up a consultation with the understanding that the system would most likely need to rebuilt. It is very difficult to repair concrete systems with any degree of success. We started by surveying and inspecting the pond to see all of the problems and, of course, repair was not an option. The simple rigidity of the concrete/mortar had been compromised by normal earth movement over time.
The back drop of this feature were these beautiful natural boulders the size of cars so stone and boulders were used to make it look like it was all apart of the same rock formations.
From the existing stream leaks, pond leaks and skimmer failure there was no way to bring this system back from the dead.
Not only was the new pond enlarged but the streams were elongated and an additional split stream was added for better viewing as you walk up the entrance to their front door.
We added Lights as well
The shadows and hot spots within the streams and outside the streams accenting the cascades and large rock formations gave the light motion as if dancing in the night.
