Commercial & Residential Waterfall Construction

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.

Commercial Rock Fountain Construction

Waterfall Construction & Maintenance Services

A Rock Fountain is an ideal choice for an owner who wants a waterfall effect to their property. Besides looking great, these fountains also produce a lyrical, soothing sound that makes any area more tranquil. Often times we receive inquiries from apartment complexes, HOA’s, and other commercial properties wanting custom waterfall features constructed and maintained.

Rock-waterfalls are growing particularly popular because they deliver all of the classic benefits of a water feature combined with minimal maintenance requirements. Rock Fountains can be placed on their own or grouped together with similar installations. This produces a very charismatic aggregate feature that lends considerable appeal and balance to the landscape. In backyards, Real-Rock water features provide a peaceful, contemplative accent to any design. These waterfalls are excellent for installation in the front yard, too — thanks to their lack of an open pond they present minimal potential liability for residential and commercial properties due to the low water-line, usually less than 12″ in order to not be fenced off from the public.

Formal-Waterfalls and Spillways are great for residential and commercial properties seeking aquatic noises and appearances.

Entry Level Waterfall Space Concerns

A small waterfall takes up a space roughly eight feet by eight feet. It’s possible to install one in a smaller area, but you should bear in mind that it’s likely to splash. There are alternative water features similar to this rock-column waterfall which come pre-built, are relatively easy to install – but also present high risk for leaks in the future if not constructed correctly. Using a 30mm-50mm liner minimum without aggressive plants close-by is a must when constructing these things.

Commercial Waterfall Space Concerns

Construction of a “commercial size” waterfall or fountain requires special attention to the foundation, urban development factors like vegetation, public access, and overall size of the water feature come into play. Some cities are ok with water features being less than 36″ deep while others require 12″ or less – we recommend referencing your local city guidelines before building a commercial or public-accessible water feature. We often require at least 30x30ft of space before we consider the “commercial grade” waterfall or fountain construction.

Waterfall & Fountain Maintenance

As with most water features with shallow basins, waterfalls and fountains are relatively easy to take care of and maintain. Depending on how much vegetation is close by, foot traffic, and how decent your equipment is – the maintenance should be minimal to none. When constructed correctly, fountains and water falls should only require similar maintenance to that of a pool. If for example you are a golf course, cemetery, or heavily vegetated area – we recommend a commercial aquatic maintenance company to bid your water feature maintenance as these are usually custom built to the property and should be professionally maintained to avoid expensive equipment repairs.

Waterfall & Fountain Cost

When they’re installed professionally, a small Column Fountain generally costs between $3,000 and $8,500. Waterfalls attached to ponds can range from $500 – $5,000 depending on the site and material needed. Commercial fountains and waterfalls can easily start at $30,000 – $150,000 depending on the size, materials used, and equipment required to keep the water feature under control.

Pondless Waterfall Construction

What Are Pondless Waterfalls?

Pondless waterfall construction is built to allow the water to run seamlessly through rock similarily to a rock column fountain. The water simply recirculates into a stream or waterfall and builds up underneath the surface unnoticed. Without the need to maintain a pond, you can enjoy the sounds and the sight of running water. You won’t have a pond for holding wildlife such as fish, because the water in a pond less waterfall is not collected in a basin. However, without the maintenance regularly required in a water garden or koi pond, these are a great way to achieve a tranquil water setting with very little work. In a water garden, a waterfall is the focal point of any property, residential or commercial.

If your yard is small or you are worried about safety, choosing a pondless waterfall construction company is a great option due to the reduced risk of a drowning. When built correctly the water is beneath the rock or material chosen. The concept is explained within the name. There is no pond, but a stream and a waterfall is included. But, why wouldn’t you want to have a pond with your waterfall? Frankly, not everyone wants a pondless waterfall. However, if someone thinks the idea of having a pond isn’t exactly what they want, these waterfalls are a great alternative.

Pondless waterfalls cycle water through the rocks and vegetation, typically without holding much water.

Rock Column & Cascading Disapearing Waterfalls

Cascading waterfalls are small, which means that beautiful waterfalls can be built and enjoyed in either a back or a front yard. We suggest at least a 10×10 space or larger. Some come pre-built with a turn-key installation, with the pump, filter, straining baskets, liner, and stone-foam.

Others are most custom made, especially on a commercial level. Large pond-less waterfalls are a great addition to many Hotels, Apartment Complex, HOA’s, and more to help drown out heavy noise from nearby roads and increase the tranquility and value-perceived of the property.

Pondless Waterfall Safety vs Traditional Ponds

If you are worried about having problems with safety with a traditional pond, the fact that cascading waterfalls have no pool of water makes them a great option. Often times customers will have large koi ponds and once having children these ponds can become a liability for the families. We are capable of filling in the pond with gravel and rock, transforming it into a custom-made pondless waterfall.

Using local stone and gravel is a great way to save money and fill in any excess space on any residential and commercial property.

Disapearing Waterfall Cost Considerations

When it comes to building a water feature for your property, cost must be considered. Depending upon the type of rock work and the size of the waterfall, a cascading falls that is professionally installed will cost somewhere between $4,500 & $10,000+. Since the pumps don’t have to be run all day and all night, the cost of operation is also lower. Timers can be used to allow the falls to operate only during times when you will be there.

Pondless Waterfall Cost Considerations

It is easy to take care of your cascading waterfall. All that is required it to fill the reservoir every couple of weeks or so to replace water that has evaporated. Or, almost all maintenance can be eliminated by installing an automatic fill valve.
