New pond and waterfall

Just finished this small sized pond and waterfall in Biltmore Park, Nc

Pond and waterfall

We replaced an existing failed pond and waterfall for our clients.

This system has a 5×8 pond with a 3×5 bog filter to keep the pond clean.

New Pondless Waterfall

Pondless Waterfall

The last couple weeks we’ve been working on this water feature.

I think it’s coming out great so far!

We set some pretty large boulders into this feature. The access was tight, but we managed to create something beautiful.

Water feature

We added some low voltage aquatic lighting to this feature. The next step will be to add plants and mulch. The plants are always the framework for the waterfall.

More progress pics to come!

New Koi Pond and Waterfall

Waterfall and Aquatic Plants

Here’s a sneak peek at the waterfall and koi pond we are working on in Hendersonville, Nc.

This pond and waterfall system has many different features to make it very unique.

We added some floating stone steps across the pond, an airlift filter grid in the bottom of the pond and a large wetland filter at the top of the falls.

It’s going to be pretty awesome when we’re all done. We still need to finish some of the edging, landscaping, patio and lighting.

Building a Pond, Part one

This month we have been working on building a decorative garden pond in Hendersonville, Nc.

Garden Koi Pond

This project is currently under construction. Please check back later for finished project photos.

This pond will be appropriately 15×22 ft wide and 4 ft deep. We added some special features to this system. Including: an intake bay filter, a wetland filter and an airlift bottom filter.

With all these filters combined, along with aeration and circulation jets, the pond will be crystal clear and have very little maintenance to keep it that way.

Boulder pond

We started off by excavating the pond area and lining it with a 45 mil EPDM rubber liner. Then we set boulders along the pond wall, leaving planting pockets for aquatic plants that will help keep the water clear and healthy.

We added some large boulders into the pond to create a truly unique and impressive feature.

We also added a fun feature to this pond. Floating Steps! They are actually not ‘floating’ but will look like it when the pond is full. We set flagstone steppingstones on top of concrete pillars to create this awesome feature.

Pillars for floating steps

As this pond developed, we decided to add some aquatic lighting into the pond so our client could enjoy the fish at night.

One of the unique filtration options we installed into this pond was the airlift filter grid at the bottom of the pond. The airlift is created using a grid of perforated pipes under gravel laid into the bottom of the pond. When the system is on, the aerator will pump water into a vertical pipe connected to the grid and create a vacuum. This will draw water through the grid and discharge it to the top of the pond. Making the whole floor of the pond a big biological filter.

Airlift Filter

As we are still working on this system, please check back soon for some finished project photos and videos.
