Charming backyard water garden in Richmond, TX features a constructed wetlands filter that adds an additional waterfall.
A beautiful water feature is the focal point of this whimsical backyard in Richmond, TX. We removed their existing 4'x8' pre-formed plastic pond and replaced it with this ecosystem pond complete with a waterfall and an intake bay so there's no skimmer to empty. A constructed wetlands filter was created behind the pond to keep the water clean and clear and returns the filtered water to the pond via a waterfall/stream combination, adding extra interest. Te constructed wetlands filter also adds extra planting areas for marginal plants. We added a tiny pump to the concrete elephant that sits in the wetlands area so that he spouts water from his trunk.
