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

In a "pondless" waterfall like this, the falling water seeps through gravel into a below ground tank and a pump recirculates it. This is a popular choice for those who want the waterfalls and a water feature but without a pond.
