Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GreenFamily Build your own
The wife and I had been shopping around and gathering information on creating a new water feature. We are good DIYers, but.... this one scared me. A friend had bought one and said 'hey it's easy'... so we purchased one. We made ours quite large, so we had to buy a larger liner and more rocks, total investment was 2k. It turned out beautiful. It took more like 2 weeks to fully put it together due to curing time of the rocks etc. I would do it again, although this time I would I buy the items seperate, hand pick my rocks. Concept is great! Built our confidence and knowledge to really do it ourself next time..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by u7587 pond in a box-good product
We recently purchased and installed the pond in a box kit. It is beautiful. The stones that they use are so pretty. It is my favorite part of the yard. It is a slightly challenging project. It helps to have two people to help dig and move dirt/rocks. It will take longer than the day that they claim you need to install and you must figure out how to secure the mound of dirt in the back so it does not crumble. we used a retaining brick system and back filled with more dirt-it turned out great!!! I am glad that the pond is installed and am enjoying it. Well worth the effort!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robin Great waterfall! Great quality!
The most difficult thing for us to do was build the mound for the waterfall. We needed more dirt than what we dug out for the pond and the extra dirt we got was not very good quality. After we got the mound built the rest was a breeze! I would highly recommend getting quality dirt because the mound is the foundation for the waterfall. Also, make sure you don't go bigger than what the enclosed string allows when measuring out your waterfall & pond. When we got more dirt we covered the outline of the waterfall and ended up building it too big. We had to make the waterfall shorter and bring it closer to the pond and reduce the depth of the pond in order for the liner to fit. It took us about a week a couple hours a day to finish.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NONICKNAMESAVAILABLE Great Starter Kit
The kit was delivered in a timly manner and when promised. The instruction video was pretty common sense. We spent a week building the pond and waterfall a few hours at a time. It's a bit like piecing a puzzle together. We built it a little bigger than it's suppose to be so used some flagstone we had and bought a few more river rock. The rock that came in the kit was a nice variety with patterns and colors that give it character.
The bottom line is we love our pond and waterfall as it turned out even bettter than we anticipated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tuckerswife The size and amount of flagstone, pebbles etc.
After carefully reviewing the video and reading the instruction booklet, i began by joining the ends of the string provided. It turned out to much to large for the liner, the amount of stone , pebbles and pea stone provided. I had to go to a somewhat local lumber store and purchase a pallet of large stone pieces, plus 2 bags of pebbles and stones just to cover the bottom of the pond. We also had to come up with some creative ideas to make the water create a cascade rather than just run out from the end of the hose. After purchasing the kit, the extra rock and the landscaping, it ended up costing me 1,500. 00+ dollars, and thats with using things around the house to. I have to say, with a little ingenuity, it turned out pretty darn nice., But I wouldn't want to do it again!!!

After some shipping issues, i was delivered my Pond Waterfall Kit... It's hard to believe that they can ship something like this in a box... but it's true...The stones were very nice and all products in the box were of excellent quality. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to build and waterfall and doesn't know where to start... This is the whole kit and when your done it's beautiful....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Everything it said it was!
The waterfall arrived all in the box just like it said it would. We were impressed on the quality and beauty of the stone. Unfortunatly, we did not understand the instructions on the size, so we ended up buying a larger liner and more flagstone. But it all worked out. We get many complements on the waterfeature. It would also be helpful if they could give advice on how to keep the algea at bay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scrapbooker Beautiful Pond and Waterfall Complete Kit
I just purchased this product and am very pleased to say that it was more than I expected. It had everything needed, even down to the little waterfall foam for those little leak spots. It took myself and my teenage son a day to build. The next moring we added water and have enjoyed it sense. The all natural stones are beautiful, the equipment is durable and complete. We did not have to go purchase anything from our local Home Depot Store to complete the project. I was a little unsure of the outcome since I have never built something like this before. However, the installation video that came in the box with the kit eased my mind. It was thorough and gave me confidence to proceed with excitement. I had a great day with my son doing a project that added a lot to my back yard. I would definitely reccomend this product to anyone who enjoys a nice water feature. Not to mention, when it is all done and you are sitting there looking at it. It sure shows like it should cost a lot more than it does.
