Water Feature, NE Bend
The backyard was more or less a rock shelf covered in Juniper trees and shrubs which the owners had removed but were at a loss as to how to make their backyard into the beautiful and bird friendly paradise they wanted.
See all those rocks? I brought in about 12 yards of garden mix soil amendment plus 3/8" gravel fines to make paths as a first step. That gave me a few inches of good soil for planting (no joke! the owner rented a jackhammer to plant some of the shrubs and small trees!).
Next step was to build a water feature. I love boulders and the challenge of designing with water. I received such great help from Ewing's in NE Bend, thanks Molly!
We were able to dig about six inches down for the basin, the rest I had to build up.
That pond liner material is so cool! I have some left over and wondering what kind of Halloween costume I could make out of it...
The structure is coming along, quite a puzzle getting all those Oregon Mossy Rocks to fit together.
Wow, the water feature is finished and it is gorgeous!!! I look forward to getting it planted and filling in around it.
The soothing sound of water...
