    Hmmm... OK!
    Take and drill a hole down thru that depression at the top...
    Drill an intersecting hole to run water up to that depression...
    Drill a tunnel thru the rock that faces the street...
    Build a bridge from the tunnel to the edge of the pond that the "falls" will make from the
    water in the depression...
    The rest of the frontyard garden rail is up to you...
    just thinking out loud...

    Just out of curiosity, did it grow there or was it planted? :eek: If it was planted, where did you get the seed? :D :D

    Oh!

    Fifer, you got the wrong kind of seed. You should have got the ground cover so it would grow out and cover the lawn; no mowing. It would only have cost a nickle more. Save that much in wower gas.

    Lynn , as of yesterday we moved in 15 tons of gravel and it will save water and mower gas!! :thumb:

    b28_82 , When was the last time you tried to lift , buy , or move a 5' X 3' X 3' boulder??
    I did that in Albuquerque and my father-in-laws Case 4X4 backhoe would not lift it so we had to flop it about 50 yards to its resting place and it is still there today. :eek:

    Yeah well, the last one I saw was the one that came out of digging the basement for the house when I was younger. They were going to take it away but my parents wanted to keep it in the front yard over by the driveway. I think it might still be there. I'm guessing they moved it with a nice size tracked excavator. So I suppose i see your point.
