Studebaker Waterfall

Diane and Richard in Joplin, MO

This was our summer project. We already had a large pond with an island, so we sank a 1949 Studebaker truck into the side of the island facing our house. Then came the waterfall, the beach and all the landscaping. We won't talk about all the work to get ready for the Garden tour when a tornado ripped through our property uprooting the willow tree into the pond and smashing every pot of flowers, every piece of outdoor furniture and taking part of our house roof...but we rose to the occasion and had the tree righted to it's original position, pots from friends borrowed and lawn furniture glued together in 6 days for the Garden Tour. And now..we just relax and enjoy!

Hi Diane. This is one of the most unique water features we've ever seen. You should submit this in the Lawn Wars TV Show contest. Go to the Yard Contests tab to get started.

We are located in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin zone 4-5. Are Winters are LONG and I am ready for Spring in February. The plants that are zone 5 I cover with leaves the first Winter until they get established. Thank you for strolling my gardens with me.
