Waterfall build

Currently in the process of rebuilding my waterfall to a minI rapid style design. I realized today while laying out my liner over the retaining walls that I will have vertical faces of exposed liner where it goes over my retaining wall on either side of the waterfall. How can I cover this up?

Only thought I have, is to have slate or flat rock overhanging the retaining wall and fold the liner back under the slate.

I'll take a picture tomorrow to outline what I mean.

Thought of a solution last night, remove the last block of the retaining wall under the liner and lay beach rocks on top and seal the cracks with waterfall foam. It will look natural and water tight.

Do I need to cover waterfall foam?

There are different kinds of water fall foam. Which one are you using? Most of them should be fine not covered, but if you have a nice flat rock that you want, you could embed it in the foam. That way you will see the rock and not the liner or the foam.

New design as she sits now, it's semI done. I have more cracks to fill in to guide the water where I want it but it's getting close now.

Before next weekend it should have water flowing and plants in. Haven't decided when the fish are going in.

I haven't hooked it up yet but I plan to have it running by next week. Obviously I will have the water going before plants and fish go in. It's a simple set up I will have 2 pumps running with a combined 1640GPH through ABS pipe run to the top of the falls.

IT'S ALIVE!!!! hooked up the pumps and filter today for the first time and she looks pretty good. Disconnected the pumps because I need to add some teflon tape to one fitting. Pic's with plants tomorrow.

it looks like it will be very nice... I am glad to see you taking the time to get it just the way you want it. I personally can't stand seeing my liner in a pond and built the waterfall to carefully conceal it. Can't wait to see the finished product
