This month we have been working on building a decorative garden pond in Hendersonville, Nc.
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.
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.
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.
As we are still working on this system, please check back soon for some finished project photos and videos.
Give us a call or message with any questions, or if you are considering having a pond or waterfall installed in your yard.
We just finished this really fun project in Burnsville, NC. Our clients had an existing Koi pond that was failing. It was an old wooden structure the retained the pond.
We talked about options to fix the feature and deck that a rebuilt was needed. So we made plans to create a new outdoor space around the pond. The finished design incorporated a new dedicated Koi pond, a Pondless waterfall, stone stairs and a dry laid flagstone patio.
The pond ended up being 10×15 ft by 6 ft deep. We installed a rotating drum filter with a moving bed biological filtration system. This filter is top of the line and automatically cleans itself!
Below the pond we installed a Pondless waterfall with a Filtrific filter. We installed this waterfall seem as it flows out of the pond, but it’s a separate system.
We also installed a stone slab stairway that wrapped around the pond and leads you down to the lower waterfall.
There is a stone bridge over the falls that makes a great feature.
It was an amazing project to be a part of. And I’m very thankful to be able to work with such awesome clients!
