    Waterfall Stone in Texas

    Every pool we see has Moss Rock for their waterfalls and we just do not like the look of the Moss Rock. Are there any other options of non porous stone to use?

    Thanks,

    We had the Sheer descents in our last pool on a raised beam and they were okay but not very natural looking.

    I like the idea of the stacked stone. What type of stone is good to use for that?

    We have Oklahoma Flag for coping and then Tuscany colored textured decking.

    The plan is to have a weeping wall from 2.5' in the center and then taper off over 12 feet to each side.
    PB has stated he will request light stone and no reds as I prefer the lighter colors to be as neutral as possible.
