Today is the last day we’re at the [Haynersville
00:00:15] Project. We started this actually in the winter and Jason and I finished this
on our own. This frame today is our last day. We just put the aquatic plans in about an
hour ago. This is our filtration bed. It’s kind of like a zero edge coming off of the
body of water. We’ve got some boulders set in here. This is going to look real good,
and give it a years time and all the plants start growing. It’s got really good sound.
Different elevation drops. Over here you can kind of see that little it of foam. This whole
area’s skinny in that corner to make it easy for maintenance purposes for the homeowner.
You’ll see as we walk right up. As you can see, on the up around here, this
is where the pond starts. This recreation pond is twenty-five by sixty. Most of it’s
four foot deep. We have a seven and a half foot point too. Up on here we just have a
little bit of aquatic plants. The owner didn’t want much boulder exposure or anything, so
we got the grass that’s just kind of wrapping right along the edge. Did a blue stone patio
and a set of stairs that we’ll come around to. We beached out an area so the kids could
kind of just transition right in from that one side. This is their dog Cupcake. Look,
it’s already enjoying the pond. Put this big slab stone in, so somebody kind
of wanted to transition into the pond that way they can also. Look, their daughter already
has the first duck in the pond. We had the blue stone patio kind of come right up to
the edge of the pond, so if they wanted to kind of just step in from there they could
also. We have a very gentle sounding stream because the patio’s so close. We didn’t want
to have the sound be too overbearing. This is our other filtration component. This is
our bog. This is what’s filtering it in addition to the wetland area that we showed you to
begin with. Basically, we set this up as two systems. The bog starts here, by the pondless
coming off the hill and it’s made to look like all one unit. This is the end of the
pondless. Our waterfall area goes up from here. This is a really cool project. I love embankments
like this. You get a real natural look this way. The owner’s going to do all their own
planting around it. She likes gardening, so it’s going … I know once she’s done with
it it’s really going to enhance everything here. This has been a really great project.
It’s been fun. I have this area where they can kind of walk
through, and it’s going to go to our patio and our set of stairs. Everything is really
interactive here. You can see we’re kind of coming down. We just put some big slabs of
blue stone in. Then, an irregular blue stone patio which is fitting for the rough boulders
and stuff. Then, we left a little spot so their daughter
can kind of skip right across right across the stream and go over to that big rock. We
also got bottom jets in this pond just to get the water moving down at the seven and
a half foot spot and at the four foot areas. We also did some surface jets on this shallow
area where it’s all beached just to keep the water moving right to the skinny point. I can’t wait to come back here in about a
year/year and a half when all these plants are all grown in and everything looks really
up to maturity and everything. You can see here, it’s kind of like this little skinny
area where we got … Where our draw points are for the pump. Working real well because
all the foam’s going in there. Well, that’s a wrap on this project and we’ll
have more to come. Getting on to more projects now that we finished this one up, and we’ll
keep you posted on what we’ve got going on.
