Pondless Waterfalls

What is a pondless waterfall?

A pondless waterfall, also called a disappearing pondless waterfall, is just that. It is a waterfall without the pond; the water spills onto a bed of river rock and is recycled. These are perfect for those who don’t want fish, don’t want to deal with any maintenance or where child safety is a concern. You can enjoy the calming sound and the look of running water without any maintenance.

Pondless waterfalls encompass a beautiful natural looking waterfall, cascading over natural rock and boulders, meandering down a small stream over natural gravel, making it’s final descent over a flat stone that creates a wonderful sheet of water, disappearing into a bed of ornamental gravel. Lower maintenance than an watergarden eco-system or pond, waterfalls without ponds are certainly becoming popular as many people have always wanted a water feature in their backyard – and can now have one constructed without the associated maintenance.

Outdoor Magic has designed and crafted many pondless waterfalls. Take a look at our photo gallery for some of our completed projects in this area of waterfall construction.
