Making faux rock

October 6, 2008
A lot of people have asked me how I make my faux rock.  I made some videos to show the basic technique and have posted them on two pond forums. Maybe it is easier if I just post them here and can refer people to this site.  That way, I hope more people will also take a look at my pond.  Because of the 10 minute limit to videos on YouTube, I’ve broken the tutorial into six parts.  I hope they are helpful.

    Don, thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge. I\’m planning for a small waterfall/pond feature in the corner of my small courtyard, and you have given me the courage to try making my own rocks for the project. Great instruction!

    Hello Don,

    I really like your work! I’m in the middle of a big landscaping ptoject here in Colorado and I found the faux rock videos very helpful.

    Do you know where I can buy the masonry insulation styrofoam beads? I’m having a really hard time trying to find a supplier around here!
