Asheville Water Feature

Pondless Waterfall Asheville

We spent the last 6 months working on this large pondless waterfall in Asheville, N.C.

This water feature is 175 ft long and has 55 ft of total drop from top to bottom. We have painstakingly hauled approximately 150 tons of materials down a narrow steep trail all by hand. There was no machine access for this project.

We created a 3600 gallon underground pondless basin to hold the water needed to circulate the system. We installed a 5 hp EasyPro external pump to create the awesome flow of water. To keep the leaf debris out of the pump, we set a Filtrific waterfall filter box into this system.

We still have some finish work to do around the feature, but I was excited to share this update because I am so pleased with how it is turning out. We need to cap off the basin, install some more edging rock and landscape the project area.

Our goal in creating this water feature was to make it as naturalistic as possible. We wanted it to blend in with the existing landscaping and seem like it was always there.

Check back with us for more updates!!

Pondless Waterfall for Birds

We finished this Pondless waterfall in Asheville this week. It was designed to create a welcoming environment for local wild birds.

I’m no expert, but know that smaller birds like slow moving water and some splash. They also like some shallow pools to bathe and play in.

We also added a piece of wood into this water feature so the birds would be able to have a place to perch by the falls.

Give us a call for more info or for a quote on your new or existing water feature.

Thanks,

Stone Veneer Asheville

We are in process of creating a custom pondless waterfall for our clients at First Baptist Church Swannanoa.

This is one of the few interior water features we have worked on.

It will be set at the entrance to the kids worship center in the church. I’m excited about working in this project and helping create a fun space for the kids.

The feature was framed into the wall with a raised pondless basin extending out into the room. The pump and filter housing is set in the narrow closet to the right of the feature.

We used an Iron Might 1/15 HP external pump for this feature. It was a tight space to plumb the pump into, but we did it.

We installed a 16 inch Aquascapes metal waterfall spillway into the wall.

Then we lined the feature with EPDM rubber liner. On top of the liner we laid DuraRock with a final waterproof coating on top.

Today we started laying veneer stone on the waterfall basin wall.

We will cap this wall with Gray Crab Orchard flagstone and install Aquablox into the pondless basin.

Check back next week for more progress.

Vanishing waterfall Asheville

Here’s a quick video of a waterfall rebuild we just finished in Hendersonville, Nc.

The original feature was a traditional Pondless waterfall that had become unusable due to the amount of debris in the system.

The traditional Pondless waterfall system has a basin at the bottom of the falls that is filled with AquaBlox. This basin holds the volume of water needed to run the system.

Seen below as we were removing the existing AquaBlox.

The picture below shows the amount of debris we pulled out of the basin.

The traditional Pondless system works fine if it is well maintained. However we prefer to install the Filtrific vanishing waterfall system. It allows us to easily clean out the basin if needed and is easy to maintain for our clients or maintenance crew.

Give us a call for a free Vanishing Waterfall design on your existing or new waterfall system.

Thanks
