Male: Yesterday, Ahmed roamed the aisles looking for a shopper willing to let them crash their backyard.
Ahmed: If I help you find a light bulb, can I go home and work in your yard with you?
Male: And Jodie Bacon took the bait.
Jodie: I'm meeting him outside and we’re going to take an adventure to my house.
Male: Ahmed got the lay of the land and came back this morning to tear it all out.
Jodie: I was just shocked that there were so many people and then it’s moving so fast right now.
Male: And it’s all to make way for her new tropical retreat. In the back corner, Erin’s moving on the water fall laying the base for the cinder block support.
Erin: We got a foundation done. We got our rebar in and make it all nice and strong.
Erin: And right now, I actually got the little chain I've cut for your hose. If you just want to set that down in there.
Male: The hose will connect to the pump in the pond to direct water at back for the waterfall. With that in place, they start stacking block making sure each is reinforced with rebar and filled out with up with concrete.
Erin’s got a good head start on the water fall. The pond is carved out with sand at the base and around the shelf. The felt and rubber liners are installed and now it’s finally ready for rock.
Erin: We’re going to use this called water canon rock. It’s going to tie in to everything else, it’s real nice when it’s wet
Erin We’re just going to throw some water on the edge here starting next to the water feature. You’re going to have to overhang just a little bit out here and it’s okay if some drops out.
Male: It’s time to cover this ugly block
Erin: So, if you want to slap some water on this rock, you just really want it on there.
Erin: Yeah. So, that’s good. So, we just want to set it in here. Some of this bottom up and just push.
Jodie: Do I need to tap it?
Erin: You tap it on the back side.
Ahmed: We’re ready to install the water fall.
Jodie: Alright, I'm ready.
Ahmed: So, we’ve got these blocks all cut out and everything, all for it and believe it or not this thing has lights inside of it so light is going to shine out, it’s going to light up.
Jodie: Sweet. It’s going to be a psychedelic party back here.
Ahmed: Awesome. So hopefully, this will slide right in here.
Male: After they drive at the decent, they motor it in place.
Erin: Drop your block, grab the level, it’s right there behind you.
Male: Getting it leveled is key so the water will flow straight out
Erin: Check the side to side again. I call that pretty good, wouldn’t you?
Jodie: That’s pretty good.
Jodie: Awesome, awesome.
Male: They lock it in between the blocks, check level one more time and fill them with concrete. Jim jumps behind the water fall to help with the plumbing.
Jim: We’re just going to go out and stick our fitting on here and as we push it on, we’re going to give it a little bit of turn just to get rid of all the air bubbles then our next fitting is going to go right there.
Male: And Erin fine tunes the water fall adding an under water light and testing out the pump.
Erin: You guys ready, here comes the water fall.
Jodie: I'm ready. Whoa, there will be a time in my life that I will be in this pond under that waterfall.
Male: Finally, after two long days and a few tropical showers, this yard is done. It’s gone from a boring empty space to an island paradise.
