Fun, beautiful and safe for kids...think pondless waterfall and stream

9,094 Views
This family has 3 very young children. They wanted a pool but did not feel comfortable with the safety of a pool with their young children. They decided on a fun, beautiful safe pondless waterfall and stream. The word "pondless" means that the reservoir for the water is underground where it is safe. The 4' high by 8' wide waterfall spills into a large landing area, and then travels down a narrow stream, around side of a lounging patio, and disappears behind evergreens into our pondless reservoir. This water feature gets winterized in December and starts up again in March. Every spring we come in to spruce up the plantings, adding perennials, annuals and mulch. www.deckandpatio.com

    I'm in love with this project! every single detail looks like a creek bed found in the woods! Best water feature I've seen and I've been looking at a lot! Thanks for sharing!

    I am sooo jealous, I've been wanting SOME kind of water feature in my yard, pond, stream, fountain, homemade or whatever. But my husband doesn't want all the work that comes with them, plus he's afraid it would draw mosquitoes and gnats... and says you have to run water out to the pond/fountain, but I told him you can use a pump to circulate the water... any ideas on how to change his mind AND how to 'build' something easy???

    @Darlene T My suggestion would be to start small with a pondless water feature. Moving water does not attract mosquitoes (they need stagnant water). These run 24/ 7 with an energy efficient pump and require little or no maintenance.
