Where did you get the spillways for the waterfall? Custom made? - I am looking for someone who can make these spillways for me, and any advice you might have about the special techniques needed for building metal fountains?

It was all custom fabricated. The general contractor has a metal shop and we worked with them. It is a concrete retaining wall with Corten Steel veneer.

Love the use of the goshen stone for the spanning of the waterway.

Corten Steel Water Feature - When considering the use of Corten for the water feature installation, did you seal or somehow treat the metal after it oxidized (rusted) to alleviate any staining the water may create with adjacent features or the water itself? Thanks, Kurt Kraisinger

Thanks, it was supposed to be cor-tens, is there a easy way for the layman to tell the difference. The sub-contractor is very adamant that it is for-tens.

No, unless you get it tested. in Australia it is made under license by one mill so easy to trace.

With your corten steel installations, do you let the steel rust naturally, or do you accelerate the process? - We are looking to do our first corten steel retaining wall installation here in Toronto. The client is very keen on the idea, but, wants some assurance that the steel will rust evenly to an orange patina. I've seen some walls with a nice consistent colour, others that look "splotchy". Your insights would be much appreciated! Jean-Marc
