The Wonders Of Water Gardening First You Dream Of It, Then You Build IT!

Build Your Own Pondless

A landscape garden waterfall installed by Pond Contractor Services Member Contractor can completely change the atmosphere of your backyard by enhancing your outdoor lifestyle. Falling water produces a peaceful sound that is soothing to the soul. Adding a well-designed waterfall and pond will transform your backyard into a private retreat where you can unwind with friends and family for years to come. There are many other benefits to installing a waterfall. First, the constant flow and movement will help to keep the pond water clear and free of algae. Second, a waterfall will aerate the water (add oxygen), which is necessary for growing aquatic plants and raising pond fish & KOI. If improperly designed a backyard waterfall can be a disaster. The trickiest aspect of waterfall design is determining the height. If a waterfall is designed too tall it will overshadow the pond. If it is designed too small it will disappear along the shoreline. Waterfall height will also impact sound and water loss. To avoid having an inefficient eyesore follow these design tips

Keep the following in mind when planning your waterfall project

Keep the waterfall in scale with your yard or space Build the waterfall on a slope for the most natural look Put plants around the berm to naturalize backdrop Leave a hollow space behind the falls to amplify the sound Increasing the height, increases the sound produced Use flat stones or boulders in the waterfalls for sheet affect Use larger “frame-rocks” on the sides of your falls Leave room for marginal plants if possible Twist and turn stream/falls for a more natural look Use a mixture of different size boulders and river gravels
