Waterfalls are the perfect complement to beautiful plantings and gardens. And the sound of running water makes any space better. If you’ve ever dreamed of living near water, here’s how to make it happen – without leaving home.
Types of waterfalls
At Good Earth Water Gardens, we use two types of waterfall systems:
- A complete pond that has a waterfall
- A pondless waterfall that has no pond but a reservoir below grade
Both systems have advantages. Let’s explore each type.
Ponds with waterfalls
Our ponds are complete ecosystems. This means plants and fish work in harmony to create good pond water quality. Components like a skimmer and filter remove much of the debris before it settles. Ponds require a bit of maintenance, but they’re designed to clean up after themselves.
Pond design is only limited by your space and imagination. We can create ponds of any size and shape, but you generally don’t want to go any smaller than 10 foot by 10 foot.
Pondless systems have become a very popular option. With this design, the water disappears through gravel into an underground basin. The pondless waterfall offers all the movement and sound from the waterfall and stream, but with virtually no maintenance. The biggest task is to make sure it has enough water in the reservoir.
Pondless waterfalls are ideal for people who want the beauty of a water feature but don’t have the space or time for a full pond. You can simply turn off a pondless waterfall if you go out of town.
A water feature can have an incredible effect on your life. Many of our clients find peace and tranquility in their backyard oasis. Others find an active ecosystem pond brings a vitality to their outdoor space. No matter what water feature is right for you, it will become a focal point of your home. There’s nothing like an evening with loved ones, listening to running water and seeing lights dance off your waterfall. Your home will truly be one of a kind.
