Have you long wanted a water feature for your garden?
Maybe you’re unsure which type to install for your home. In this post, we’ve listed down four factors you can check to determine if a pondless waterfall is the right choice for you too.
But first, a little on how the system works. If you look at a pondless waterfall, you’ll think that there’s really no pond. Truth is, it sits underground.
This pond makes use of an underground basin lined with gravel. It catches and filters water from atop the falls. A pump then pushes the water up, sending it back to the falls. This creates the illusion of a flowing waterfalls minus the pond.
Like a full pond, a pondless waterfall system creates the soothing sound of moving water. It also has other advantages, which we’ll also share with you. Let’s get started.
1. No Time for Pond Maintenance
Full ponds require routine maintenance.
You’ll need to regularly monitor water quality and feed your fish when necessary. Plants, on the other hand, require care too to make sure they’re helping sustain pond life. Cleaning is also a must to keep water quality healthy. Some homeowners are amenable to all this, while some are not.
If you want a water feature but don’t think you’re ready yet for the extra work, a pondless waterfall system could make a good choice. The most that it will require from you is refilling of the reservoir every few weeks. This is to compensate for water loss to evaporation.
2. There’s Limited Space
Does your yard space hold you back from installing a water feature?
A pondless waterfall can be made small or large depending on the yard space available. But generally, this water feature doesn’t take up much room. Plus, you can have it customized.
3. You’re Concerned About Kid Safety
If you have kids or frequently welcome kid visitors in your home, you’re probably worried that installing a pond can be dangerous.
Safety issues are commonly associated with water features. But with a pondless waterfall, you will not have to worry about this. You can let kids play close to the pond with peace of mind.
4. Part of You Wants a Full Pond
Another good thing about pondless waterfall system is that it’s flexible. Should you change your mind and want a full pond instead, that’s okay. The system could be swapped.
