Using Bridges in Water Features

We recently finished some of the edging work on the large pondless waterfall that we built last year. This included 2 wood bridges, a stone slab bridge and 2 stepping stones that help our client and his visitors enjoy the waterfall and surrounding landscape.

The waterfall in this video is off for the season, but I was excited to show some of the finished project.

We often use bridges in our pondless waterfall projects both functionally and as features. The bridge is a symbol of healing and connection. In some of our features we use stone slabs, in some wood or concrete.

Whatever material you use, using a bridge to cross you water feature will help people feel more connected to the landscape.

We have also done larger concrete structures over natural streams.

This type of bridge is much more functional, but can still be aesthetically pleasing.

Be sure to use structural material when building a bridge. Making it stout and strong so you can be confident that when you leave the project, the homeowner will not be left with a dangerous problem.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to share some of your bridge projects.

Thanks!

Flagstone Patio Asheville

Here’s a quick video of a mortared flagstone patio we just finished in Asheville.

We used Buff Crab Orchard stone for this project. There was an existing dry laid patio in this space that we replaced and reused some of the stone.

Our goal was to match the existing flagstone entryway and covered porch.

Give us a call for all your patio and landscaping projects.

We just finished this custom outdoor living area in Asheville, NC.

It has a Pondless waterfall that flows from an antique Thai Buffalo Post into a boulder bowl.

Our very talented carpenter installed a custom bench that seamlessly flows into an entryway step.

The dry laid Flagstone patio is tightly cut and matches well with the water feature on one side and the wood bench on the other.

Give us a call for your next landscape or water feature project.

Landscape Ponds Asheville

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a blog post. We have been busy installing ponds and waterfalls in Asheville, Hendersonville, Fletcher and Waynesville.

Here’s a quick update on what we’ve been up to:

Here’s a progress video of our current project. A small Pondless Waterfall in Biltmore Forest, N.C.

We should have the water running soon so check back with us. This waterfall will also have some low voltage landscape lighting and aquatic lighting when we are done building the waterfall.

We also spent a week constructing a custom dry laid walkway for our clients in Asheville.

We spent the end of 2018 working on a lot of fun projects, including ponds, stone patios, Pondless Waterfalls and water features in Asheville, N.C.

Custom, naturalistic water features are our specialty. So we enjoy every chance we get to install them for our clients.

This was a really fun project, building a turtle habitat for our client in Asheville.

It’s a custom stone enclosure with a bubbling fountain and a small pond for the turtles to play in.

We are looking forward to all the exiting water features and landscape projects that 2019 has in store for us!

Thanks

Asheville Pondless Waterfall Update.

Here is an update on the Pondless waterfall we built in Asheville this summer. Some of the edging walls are done and a nice stone stepper pathway. We did not do the edging work but it ties in nicely.
