Don't stop there! What happens next?

I only ask because I am trying to figure out a way of making a stream look like it is coming out of rocks - like a spring. I reckon I will need to have some kind of sump hidden in the rocks?

That's great! Does it flow down into a pond? I can imagine the banks with plants hanging over the edge - well that's what I'm planning! Wink

Seems you just said 'Ta da' and there it was - wish it was that easy! Laughing

Seriously, another great job. It would be nice to see it planted up and mature.

Mine is still a 'work in progress', but I have high hopes there will be something to see before the end of Summer. Photos like this just inspire me to get on with mine. Very Happy
