- I told you...rust, troughs, and old wood!
- This waterwall fountain turned out fantastic!
- Check out this video to see both sides. The sound is amazing!
- Loud enough for drowning out the busy highway but quiet enough that you don't have to shout.
Here's your daily dose of garden genius: River Rock Water Gardens, a family business based in Bentonville, Arkansas, built a beautiful waterfall out of unlikely materials: troughs and reclaimed wood. Trust us, you're going to want to see this in action.
"I told you...rust, troughs, and old wood!" reads the video caption post on the Facebook page of the company, which specializes in water gardens, koi ponds, bubbling rocks, waterfalls, and more.
"ColorFall, trough, and reclaimed wood. This waterwall fountain turned out fantastic! Check out this video to see both sides. The sound is amazing! Loud enough for drowning out the busy highway but quiet enough that you don't have to shout.
We like the sound of that! Even better, it's outfitted with LED lights for a color-changing waterfall experience at night—also known as a "colorfall."
"We've had SO much positive feedback and questions about our water trough fountain,"River Rock Water Gardens wrote in a follow-up post.
"We want to help you guys make your own but not sure which would be best so let us know!

Printed out instructions? A kit for the plumbing to buy with instructions to build? Or a completed fountain wall to buy?
HELP US OUT AND LET US KNOW!"
