Beginning process of lining fish pond
Much fine rock detail will eventually beautifully camouflage tube slide
One boulder at a time, slowly the design unfolds...
Boulders carefully placed, cemented and rebarred in place
Spring Creek customized, perfected method to move, place huge boulders
Gunite to pool
From slide mt. top, down on path, pool
Sinewy path...to where...Fun!
Gunite sprayed to upper walls
Tube slide is delivered, must be assembled
Walking path between mounds begins to emerge
Grandson can now say he stood on the bottom of the pool!
