Rotted retaining wall becomes and aquascape miracle. Project showcase- How we went from ugly walls to beautiful cascade!


This total backyard renovation started with the need to replace an old rotted wood retaining wall. There was loud road noise directly behind it, and our clients were looking for a solution. The combination of large boulders and landscaping stabilizes the hill. The sound of the waterfall masks the road noise. The result was an updated backyard with a stepping stone path that leads through a 7' high cascading waterfall that guests can walk under, and a stream into a pondless reservoir. This new walk under waterfall is the focal point for the renovated pool and patio space. Project by Deck and Patio Company Huntington Station New York.

    Hey @Deck and Patio Company, this is a stunning Pondless Waterfall. I love how the stepping stone path goes right through it! Great design and excellent job.
