Sneak Peak! Pondless Waterfall project in Asheville

Pondless Waterfall, Asheville Nc

We’re finishing up this Pondless waterfall here in Asheville, Nc

This is the 4th waterfall we have built on this property in 5 years.

This Pondless waterfall is approximately 200 ft long with a 60 ft total drop. It has a 5 hp external waterfall pump to circulate the system.

This is just a sneak peak of the falls that we just got running today. We still have a lot of edging work, pathways, stairs, bridges and landscaping to finish up in the next couple months. We’ve been on this project for 4 months so far.

The end result on this project will be to have a waterfall that flows down the whole length of the property. With about 350 ft of total drop and appropriately 600-700 ft of total length of waterfalls.

Waterfall

There are 4 separate waterfall systems so far, with probably 4 more to come. Each system has its own pump, but we’re built to look like one feature as you walk the property.

The most amazing part of this project is that there is no machine access on the property, so every stone has to be brought down by hand.

New Flagstone Patio

Flagstone Patio

We just finished this custom dry laid flagstone patio in Weaverville, NC

This patio includes an inlay pattern in the center. While the rest of the patio is a random pattern, the central inlay draws your eye and invites you in.

The special part about this patio project was the custom wood bench.

My carpenter custom made this glue-lam curved bench from trees on his property.

The bench was then cut into two 1000 pound boulders. Creating a beautiful and functional feature.

In addition to the stone and wood in the design of this feature, we installed a landscape lighting system so that it can be enjoyed at night.

This was a fun feature to build and we hope to build more features like this in the future.

Give us a call if you would like something like this in your yard!

How to build a Pondless Boulder Fountain

Here’s a video on building a large bubbling boulder fountain.

We completed this project in Asheville, NC

Boulder fountains are a great way to get the relaxing sound of a water feature into your yard with minimal space used.

This feature only takes up about a 5×5 ft area, so they’re great for small yards.

In this video we will detail the full construction and installation process, will all tools and materials that you will need.

Wood, Stone and Water…

Pondless Waterfall

Working in the landscape industry allows us to create beautiful features with lots of different types of materials. We are just finishing up this custom Pondless waterfall in Weaverville, NC.

This was a fun waterfall to build and was designed to flow out from under the new deck that we had built. Blending the new deck into the rock work and waterfall.

In order to do this we had to custom cut the stairs into one of our waterfall frame boulders.

Wood stairs and boulder

At first it seemed like a problem. We didn’t plan to cut the step stringers into the boulder. But after we set the waterfall rocks, we realized the frame boulder was too tall. So we got together with the carpenter and came up with a solution. In the end I think it helped to meld the two features together.

Waterfall and deck

We’ve had the opportunity to use wood, stone and even metal into some of our features. I really love to be able to blend the different materials when possible.

There are lots of options for your water feature projects. So think outside the box and be creative!

Also using ceramics and sculpture can be a fun way to create a water feature or fountain

Rock Balancing Art

Rock art

Today I took a walk with my daughter into the woods to relax, enjoy each other’s company and get into nature.

We ended up balancing some rocks at a popular swimming hole.

It was an amazing time. Taking a day off of work to spend some important time with my daughter.

Rock balancing

We started off picking some wild blueberries. Then strolling down to the river, we ate some lunch and enjoyed the waterfalls.

It was a great time. Balancing stone is an amazing meditation and relaxing art form.

Temporary art

When we finished we discussed if we should knock them down or not. We decided to leave them up. Then we hiked up to the top of the waterfall and as we looked down on our rock balancing we saw people hiking in and taking pictures of our work. Then we noticed people engaging with what we did. Some tried to balance their own rocks, one guy balanced a rock on top of ours. It was a beautiful thing.
