    Waterfall was constructed using reclaimed rubble foundations stones from a demolished barn that was on the Owners property. Waterfall was built on a waste area of high embankment on their farm pond. Pump vault is placed in the pond and all water recirculates back into the pond. This was a long time desire of the Owner and completion made her VERY happy. She has fond memories of the old barn and always wanted to re-use the stones that were saved. Items for the waterfall included pump, vault, tubing, weir, pond liner and under-layment, all of which were purchase from The Pond Guy. Construction took approximately 5 weeks. It was a very enjoyable project especially seeing the look of joy on the Owners face when it was completed and fired up for the first time.
