Setting Landscape Boulders

Here’s one from the “old file” showing a 100 ton crane after a days work of setting some large stone boulders. Uh, of course they’re stone-they’re boulders.

This was back in Columbia, SC in the late 1990’s built into an embankment, the idea was too look like a tumbling waterfall cascading down this hillside.

The shelfs have been dug and today’s image shows the really large anchor stones already in place. How’d they get there? Stay tuned for those images.

Landscape Boulders in place for Ascension

[ A few of the lower boulders behind crane weighed in excess of 15 tons. ]

I will post images of boulders being set and a final look at the project in the next post.
