Mountain Falls

Site

Wedding Venue and Retreat on acreage located in Mission

Intention

To create an expansive Waterfall with Koi Pond and Bridge for the Bride-to-be to walk over, for wedding photos to be taken in-front of and to be viewed from all areas of the B&B and Wedding Tent

Solution

The location chosen used the natural elevation of the land on side of an existing slope. The waterfall is 30' long and 6' high above ground level. Sumas Quarry Natural Boulder Rock was used for the backdrop of the waterfall due to its shiny, charcoal grey colour. Sawn top and bottom Basalt was used for the 'Fall Rock's' where the water flows over to create a 'sheet' like effect. The water bounces off the Sumas boulders giving it a real natural look. Basalt risers were placed into the slope to act as steps to the upper level and Pensylvania Blue Stepping Stones along the backside of the upper pond to lead users around the waterfeature. The plants used around the pond area were all to provide interest in the Spring, Summer and Fall and be white in colour.
