Masonry Contractor - Yes, the stone is very nice, but it's the masonry work that really sets this fountain apart from others I've seen. Would love to know the contractor.

buscador nailed it! We produce a variety of beautiful stacked stone products and yes the installation is key to having a project turn out like this.

That's a great idea! But how do you channel the water through them? Is there a custom fitting in the back? Thanks!

decordemon added this to 7 Out-of-the-Box Retaining Wall Ideas
Although stacked stone looks super expensive, it's rather affordable. Each piece is simply a thin, 1-inch veneer often stocked in a 6x12 size. In order to install as a retaining wall, a contractor first builds the structure out either with pressure-treated plywood or poured concrete. The veneer acts simply as a facade. One thing that definitely drives up cost is mitered corners. This involves hundreds of cuts with a wet saw which takes way more time than simply, stacking, staggering and adding mortar.
4. Do a Reality CheckBefore you get too carried away with the details of the project, be sure that you understand the parameters — don't think of them as limitations — that you have to work within. You'll save time and money in the long run if you deal with these issues up front:Your budget. How much are you comfortable spending now, or over the course of a few years, to implement the design? What are the long-term maintenance costs? It's always best to design to your comfort level.Homeowners association rules and regulations. These may range from minimum plant sizes to paint colors for garden structures to fence styles and placement.Zoning and building codes. These laws often focus on safety — when to put a rail on a deck, or the maximum height of a street-side fence, for example.

You may not know a lot about plants yet, but you can start by making a list of plant attributes that you like. Here are some ideas to get you started: •Native to your region •Fragrant •Drought tolerant •Attracts birds and butterflies •Colorful foliage (be specific) •Deer resistant •Edible •Showy flowers •Evergreen •Autumn color You can then cross-check these with a list of plants that are best suited for growing in your region. Your local extension service is a great resource for this kind of information.
