Even if the outdoor space you have available around the Villanova, Montgomery County & Bucks County, Pennsylvania (PA) area, isn’t quite large enough to accommodate a full ecosystem pond, you can still enjoy the calming and relaxing benefits of a backyard waterfall with our pondless waterfall installation.

What exactly is a pondless waterfall? It’s a recirculating stream of water that is usually constructed using a grouping of rocks and boulders. The effect is similar to that of a quietly babbling brook found in nature. The pondless waterfall allows you to enjoy the beauty and relaxing sounds of running water, but without the additional time and maintenance, a pond entails.

Basic upkeep

Just like a pond, pondless waterfalls are a great addition to your yard, bringing not only the sound of running water, but birds chirping as well. The upkeep of these features is next to nothing, topping off the water level is the most important factor. These features are easily adaptable to accommodate both rainwater capture systems and auto top-off valves to even further reduce maintenance. We recommend that in the fall you turn your feature off for a few hours and use a leaf blower to remove any leaves that have built up at the base of the waterfall.

Ability to use plants

While aquatic plants are not a necessary component of a pondless waterfall, that does not mean they can't be added. Having pooling areas where aquatic plants can root in and add plenty of color and texture is a way to blend your feature into the landscape. The addition of ground covering semi-aquatic plants, such as creeping jenny and forget-me-nots, softens rock edges and naturalizes the waterfalls.

Reasons for choosing this option

While both Ponds and pondless waterfalls bring beautiful sights and sound to your yard, pondless waterfalls are the clear choice for those customers who travel a great deal or do not have the space for an ecosystem pond. These waterfalls are a great substitute for a pond if the slope of your yard is too steep for a pond installation.

So what is a pondless waterfall ?

Pondless waterfalls are a great solution for people in the Villanova, Montgomery County & Bucks County, Pennsylvania (PA)area with smaller properties since they require only a small amount of usable space. Additionally, some families with small children tell us they worry about the safety aspects of a large backyard ecosystem pond, and many of them who decide to have a pondless waterfall installed end up very happy with the results. We work closely with our clients to ensure that their pondless waterfalls are a natural enhancement to their property, and don’t look out of place. And if you think you may want to add a pond to your waterfall feature at some point in the future, don’t worry: As long as you have the necessary space, our technicians can install your pondless waterfall in such a way that a future pond addition can be a possibility.
