Asheville Pondless Waterfall

We just finished a fun Pondless waterfall in Biltmore Forest outside of Asheville, N.C.

This was a small but fun water feature to build. It has a Filtrific waterfall filter to keep leaves and debris out of the pump housing. The Filtrific filter makes it easier for our clients to maintain the feature, saving them hundreds of dollars a year from paying a contractor to maintain the filter.

We used mostly Tennessee fieldstone in the construction of this waterfall.

This feature still needs some finishing work including: planting, LED aquatic lighting and retaining walls to support the edging.

We love building Pondless waterfalls, mostly because it’s fun, but they also allow our clients to enjoy a custom water feature in their yard with minimal maintenance.

Give us a call for your water feature or custom garden project.

Slow Motion waterfall

Here’s a quick video of a Pondless waterfall we built in Asheville NC.

Just a reminder to slow down a bit and enjoy your surroundings.

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.

New Vanishing Waterfall in Asheville, NC

We are almost finished with this vanishing waterfall in Asheville.

A vanishing waterfall is different from a Pondless Waterfall.

With a traditional Pondless Waterfall, all of the water used to circulate in the falls is stored at the base of the falls in a ‘Pondless basin’ that is created using ‘Aqua blocks’ (basically structural milk crates) set inside a rubber liner and covered with river rock.

This is a good system and very functional.

However it leaves no room to filter out leaf debris that may fall into the system.

With a vanishing waterfall, we can install a leaf catch filter away from the system for easy maintenance.

Here you can see the Filtrific leaf catch filter tank set away from the base of the falls. We will backfill around the filter box so that it will be integrated into the landscape.

After the water in the system flows through the Filtrific filter box, in drops into the vanishing basin. This can be man made or you can use a pre-fabricated cistern.

For this project we built a 4000 gallon tank out of cinder block and lined the inside.

We also use Filtrific holding tanks or even plastic septic tanks for our systems.

You can install your submersible pump into the tank or draw water for the waterfall from the tank using an external pump.

Here’s a quick video of our current vanishing waterfall project in Asheville.

Pondless Waterfall Stone

Here’s a short time lapse video of us moving and setting a waterfall stone on our current Pondless Waterfall project in Asheville, nc.

The site is difficult to access and all materials need to be brought down to the job site by hand.

Check back soon for more updates on this project.
