The Bauer brothers' lifelong passion for nature led them into an exclusive artistry designing and creating natural luxury waterfalls and koi ponds. They won SLHL Garden of the Year for creating an elite waterfall featuring nearly 1000 tons (37 semi loads) of natural stone boulders that pumps 48,000 gallons of water per hour. Caleb Bauer also won 5
Under 40 for his artistry in designing and constructing widespread waterfalls by finessing large
boulders into place for beauty and stability much like a jeweler sets diamonds. While stones make up pathways, steps and landings are made flat and others are boulder-like quality both to anchor hillsides during erosion-creating rains and mimic the Rocky Mountain landscape homeowners love.
Growing up on property bordering the nearly 6500 acre Cuivre River State Park, the young Bauers explored the secrets of the woods from the mossy creek bottoms to the oak covered hilltops. This powerful experience was essential for the creation of and natural aspect to Bauer Falls. It was created with the idea of bringing as much nature to people as possible. During their time spent in the hills and woods, the lay of the land; the way, over the centuries, rocks and boulders tumbled into place, and the ebb and flow of the streams and creeks became imbedded in their minds. They have used that natural institutional memory to make their clients feel as though a real spring flows from their land.
