Pondless Waterfalls for the Landscape

water features 08.13.15
A pondless waterfall is a waterfall without the pond. You still get the wonderful sight and sound of running water in your garden without having a pond. Pondless waterfalls can be tucked into a small corner of the garden, or they can stretch across the yard. No space is too big or too small!

    Aquascape Inc.....Since there is no pond, does that mean no cleaning of algae?

    Vivian S, the short answer is in general it does not require a powerful pump. However, long distance & high rise of the water could require a bigger pump. In general most pondless waterfalls are energy efficient.

    Robert G, a pondless waterfall can be installed on flat ground. You need to dig a reservoir for the water that's circulated, and the dirt from excavating the reservoir can be used to build a berm to create elevation for the waterfall.

    Daniela, Jeff and Jacque/Matt are right. Mosquitoes prefer stagnant water to lay their eggs, so since the water is moving you don't need to worry about mosquitoes. In ponds and container water gardens with fish, the fish will eat the mosquito larvae.

    Hi, Can this be put up on flat ground or would you need to set it up on a down slope to begin with?

    We (theDIYvillage) were lucky enough to be selected by STI Knoxville to have a pond less water feature installed in our back yard. They installed an AquaBasin with the Mongolian Balsalt Column. It's wonderful! I cannot wait to do the landscaping

    @Daniela I don't think it would breed mosquitoes because it would be constantly moving water. The best environment for mosquitoes is stagnant water. The more stagnant the better for the mosquitoes.
