Pondless Waterfall Transforms Backyard in NH

A steep hillside can be a difficult area in a yard. Too steep to mow, and difficult to plant and weed. We overcame these challenges by adding pathways throughout the garden that give nice level workplaces. Plantings need to be closer together as the slope lets in more air and sunshine than a traditional flat garden bed, and lastly we added a 35' pondless waterfall to transform this NH backyard. Pondless waterfalls are low maintenance (less than 10 min a week). They add a touch of class and tranquility.

    Is there any similar to this (pondless ) would like proper instructions and there are None on this project.... maybe mistakenly??


    Good morning,

    I have a 22 acres of the land has slope hills are hight up to 8'-18' up to 30' feet high up as you see on pictures, with giant granite rocks many areas of the land. That are naturally set on the slope hills that has a creek go through both side like a canyon of the the rock slopes hills, instead of make a dam block the creek, tried to make a pond less waterfall as it is natural without mortify or digging, but will be add some rocks and plants to make a decor able around pond less waterfall areas.

    Please advise, which way will be the best way to create DIY project,

    looking forward to hearing from you soon, I'm at Sanger, CA cell: 818-217-7967 or xqis@me.com

    Thank you,

    I love this and it looks FANTASTIC!! I want to build a waterfall, but I have one problem I don't have a slopped backyard, mines flat. So in my flat yard I have to somehow build a hill to start my waterfall on and make it look natural. Any ideas?
