Sandstone of the Appalachian Mountains

This back yard koi pond and court yard was Built over a period of about 10 years.

 The materials are sandstone of the Appalachian mountains and 2″ flagstone that primarily came off our farm. The flagstone on the steps are all one solid slab pieces. 

The Koi pond is approx.  22′ x 40 and holds 13,000 gallons of water. 

The wall behind the Koi pond is over 100 foot long and measures  5 1/2 foot tall. 

The waterfall is 4’wide with a 20′ drop that is recirculated by 2 super falls pumps.  The outlet at the top of the waterfall is 4″ and the rock has a perfect natural 4″ outlet  made into the rock itself.  All the rocks in the waterfall are natural and are a product of nature and the Appalachian mountain range.

All the rocks involved in this project were hand selected and hand laid. 

The project is near completion but still has a few details to complete.
