It’s not that difficult to understand why some contractors might balk at the prospect of a project that requires manipulating more than 40 tons of boulders into a pondless waterfall in a tight backyard with limited access and an extreme slope. But when a recently retired couple presented the idea to Tim Wood at a home and garden show, it was clear that they had found the right person for the job.

The best waterfall winner is John Adams and the 140-foot-long, resplendent pondless waterfall.
The larger-than-life, living sculpture consists of two waterfall spillways providing tranquil melodies of trickling water that flow into a 500-gallon reservoir. Tim also integrated a series of fallen logs and large sections of thick moss harvested from the nearby woods to create a naturalistic oasis that far exceeded the customer’s expectations.
