Expansive Waterfalls and Pond in Crown Point, Indiana

This 500-foot long water feature located at a private residence in Crown Point may look natural, but it was installed by Aquascape 2 years ago. A constructed wetland filter helps clean the water and a sub-surface. RainXchange rainwater harvesting system manages stormwater run-off and stores it to feed the water feature as needed. A beautiful and environmentally-friendly landscape feature all-in-one! See the 4-minute video of this project at http://www.hometalk.com/1635776/million-doll....

    Sheryll, the entire yard transformation was about $1M, but that includes all the landscaping (much of which you don't see) in addition to the water feature.

    Susan S It is called Red Flare. I buy all my lillies from Texas. Don't you think it is time for me to make my pond MORE expansive? It would just be an ADD-on of an acre or two. I love the Aquascape pond.

    Sherrie S - didn't you say you have a couple of acres somewhere way back in other conversations? Sounds like you have plenty of room for expansion - GO FOR IT!! So you order you pond lilies

    Susan S Those Texans know how to ship. Put plant in plastic bag add pond water and seal well. Yes I have 2 acres but putting that water feature here would fill the entire yard and I would lose much of the wildlife. No can do $$wise or otherwise.

    Yeah, but still, w/two acres you can have a pretty darned impressive water feature. Of course, then you'd really have ginormous issues w/Herons stealing your fish!! I just wanted to razz you a little bit. The water feature you have is just perfect!!

    Cid P, you want to use 45 mil EPDM fish-safe pond liner which is available in rolls or popular cut sizes. You can find pond liner information at http://store.aquascapeinc.com/c/liners-under....
