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!

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.
