Ever wanted to build a waterfall or pondless waterfall on your property? Believe it or not, water features can serve as great assets for residential and commercial properties with great weather such as California or similar states. With the ease of maintenance, as long as the waterfall construction is good – having a waterfall on your property might just be the missing link to what you’ve always needed.
Constructing a koi pond, waterfall, pondless waterfall, or other landscape water feature is a great investment for any property. When constructed correctly, water features can add tranquility and value to any property – residential or commercial. The sounds of water flowing freely, the greenery brought on by the beauty of a water garden, and the pleasure of owning koi fish, all bring delight to ourselves and customers renting the property. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end – or at least a subtle halt while your water feature is to be assessed and repaired effectively for any leak.
This is a pond-less waterfall, great for adding water-noise and tranquility to your backyard.
Building a waterfall on your property should be done by a professional who understands your local vegetation (for future leak issues) and also for future maintenance requirements as not all water features are equal. For example, most waterfalls will need a basin which also needs maintenance, some are pondless – which have pros and cons to themselves, while others are full-on ponds and habitat eco-systems which will require a professional to review before hand.
Retaining Wall Waterfalls
A retaining wall waterfall construction is a simple water feature that adds considerable aesthetic appeal to your landscape. Most retaining wall waterfalls are built to spill a long, smooth, even sheet of water that cascades over the wall and into a retaining pool. Easily adaptable to virtually any form of structure, these water features can be added to block walls both indoors and outdoors.
When a waterfall in properly designed and constructed, a retaining-wall waterfall is an efficient, low-cost way to add drama and interest to any kind of space. Many modern waterfalls of this type are built with LED lights to further amplify their beauty and appeal. It’s easy to add color, motion, and complex programs to such a feature’s lighting system. When these waterfalls are built with an autofill kit, the water feature’s maintenance requirements become minimal.
The Value Of Stainless Steel
Formal Falls are built with stainless steel spouts for great durability. These spouts also make the noise of the running water gentle and constant, making them ideally suited for use on block columns, outdoor spaces, and indoor installations.
The cost of a waterfall construction will vary depending on the width of the water feature and the construction characteristics of the wall in which it is installed. Speak to your authorized installer to learn more about the costs of these features.
These waterfalls are a breeze to take care of. Unlike maintaining a water garden or koi pond, these are relatively low maintenance. The reservoir will need to be topped up on a biweekly basis to replace water lost through evaporation, but the consumer need not worry about any other maintenance tasks. A fill valve can even be installed to handle this chore automatically! These falls require no special preparations for winter, either. They need to be drained and refilled in the spring. Each waterfall’s basin has dual pump access (on the left or right) to suit the needs of the installation.
Waterfalls constructed in retaining walls can be placed in both above-grade and in-ground walls in a variety of different configurations.
