What's under the waterfall? The entrance, or a grotto?

Hello, and thank you for your inquiry. The waterfall masks a pool-side entry into a grotto, which is also accessible from behind the waterfall. I have attached some additional images with more detail for your perusal.

The stone on the waterfall and grotto is New York Boulder Outcropping Stone and Aqua Blue Boulders, with some Irregular Bluestone steppers. The Pool deck is Turkish Travertine in Ivory White, 3/4" thick. The pool coping is Valders Wisconsin Limestone, Dovewhite color, 2 1/2" thick.

Where did you get the bridge?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Platinum Poolcare
This bridge was carved from solid Indiana Limestone by a local supplier whom we use for much of our stone.
