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!

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

Custom Pool Waterfall

We just got this water feature running today after waiting about a month for the plumbing and pool plaster to get finished.

It was a fun project to build for a great pool company. We worked to make it as naturalistic as possible while working off the top of the pool coping with a 4 ft drop behind the falls.

The design set the falls here to give the clients a stunning view of the falls and the mountains behind.

We are looking forward to building more waterfalls and water features into swimming pools. Something I’ve wanted to get into since the beginning of my career.

Check back with us for more updates.

Filtrific Pondless Waterfall

Here’s a Pondless waterfall we did this week using the Filtrific waterfall filter.

We removed the existing pond and waterfall and re-built it creating a beautiful backyard oasis.

Using the Filtrific system allows our clients easy maintenance and a longer lasting system.

Here you can see us installing the filter box at the bottom of the falls. This box will hold the submersible pump that will run the system and the filter baskets that keep debris out of the pump.

Give us a call for a free estimate on your next water feature or landscaping project.
