Few things offer the peace and serenity that running water provides, and pondless water features are an affordable and hassle-free way to beautify your property. Perhaps you have dreamed of having a body of water or pond near your home but do not want to deal with the expense and high-maintenance involved in digging a pond in your back yard. You can still achieve the same beauty and tranquility through pondless water features. These features include waterfalls and streams complete with rocks and realistic aquatic plants that can turn your yard into a peaceful sanctuary.
Installing pondless water features allows even the most hands-off homeowners to create an eye-appealing focal point for their properties. One possibility is the disappearing pondless waterfall which gives the appearance of a disappearing waterfall and stream. The water level never pools above rock level and the gravel fill, creating a soft waterscape.
Innovative Pondless Water Features Create Natural-looking Beauty
This feature works by capturing the water in a basin underground lined and filled with rock and gravel. This basin also houses the discreet pump equipment, which keeps the waterfall looking natural.
The water circulates from beneath the rocks and gravel by the concealed and submersed pump and then travels via an underground pipe directly to the waterfall. Flowing down the stream, the water empties into the waterfall basin.
Pondless Water Features are Safe, Low Maintenance
The unique timer feature of the pondless waterfall makes it virtually maintenance-free. A timer controls the pump operation, which saves energy. An auto-fill valve is used to replace evaporated water; these features keep the waterfall running smoothly and seamlessly.
For homeowners with small children, pondless water features are much safer than ponds and other bodies of water. The waterfalls and streams do not have significant pools of water, making it unlikely that a child will become injured. These features reduce the drowning concerns associated with backyard ponds.
Additionally, because the water in pondless water features is always flowing, the water does not become stagnant, eliminating the common problem of mosquitoes that tend to plague standing water.
