So making an area on the waterfall with pe gravel will not work?

That's exactly how mine are/were planted. I used larger rocks to make 'walls', then stuck the plant in the middle & piled pea gravel over the top of the root ball to hold it in place. They started out pretty much bare root, but there was a bit of soil stuck to them & I didn't get worried about completely washing it off.

plant pocket & tucked in some Forget-me-not along one of the sides
agreed .

And like lisa mentioned lay the drift wood in the stream and laying on the edge so the water runs under the wood very cool effect and i would bet with the smaller rock on the falls it doubled in the audible volume.

Well as an 80 year old and retired i really need something to keep me bussy.So far this pond is doing that. But when it is done i will undoubtedly find something to change.

80 years old! You've inspired all of us @420benz ! Many folks your age struggle to figure out the internet, let alone build a pond. I'm hoping part of the secret is just to never stop being active - that's my current plan!

That is the key, never stop. I refuse to be a couch potato. Slowing down a bit, but not stopping. Just bought a bush hog for my tractor!
