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!
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.
