What Houzz contributors are saying:
"The two-story-high staircase was the perfect opportunity to build a water feature spilling water along the stairs," Pedersen says. He craned in boulders as heavy as 6 tons from Sonoma County and carefully nestled them onto concrete beds that work like shelves, allowing the stream to cascade over and between them."This kind of thing is easy to draw, but not so easy to build," he says. "You really have to compose it just right to keep it from looking artificial."
