Mountain Streams

The art in a good water feature is making it look as though it was designed by nature and not us. A variety of stone sizes and shapes give our features this quality along with pieces of drift wood. Although it looks natural, each stone has to be carefully set into place. 

Designed to Look Like Nature Built It

This section of the stream is part of an overall system that is 140 feet long and varies from 2-10 ft. wide. Five different cascades and waterfalls present the soothing sound and majestic beauty that only moving water can.

The inspiration here is a  natural spring flowing from the hillside

The inspiration here is a natural spring flowing from the hillside. This is a small piece of an 70 ft. long stream with multiple waterfalls that begin in three different locations and then converge. The stream then flows under a stone bridge and into the ground. From the underground tank the water is pumped back to the three starting points and the circulation continues.
