This pondless waterfall is set in a lovely suburban park.  This pondless waterfall showcases weathered limestone, and large boulder construction to stand up against the many rigors of a public park.  We were privilidged to build this pondless waterfall with National Geographic Wild Pondstars Ed Beaulieu and Greg Wittstock of Aquascape Inc.

Kanuwloe is an amazing village, full of vibrant children.  We installed a 25,000 gallon RainXchange rainwater harvesting system with the aquascape foundation in Jan/Feb 2014.  The photo (two pictures up on the left) shows April and some boys sitting next to the water source for this village before the RainXChange system was installed.

 

 

 

Recreational Pond Makeover: 

This recreational pond was designed to allow the homeowners to cool off after a hot day, provide habitat for their collection of beautiful koi, and visiting painted turtle.  It features an upflow bog,  35′ of waterfalls, a recreational pond of large boulder construction that is four feet deep and an intake bog to keep things tidy by skimming the ponds surface. Unique features include underwater steps and a stone chair under the waterfall…

Andover, MA Project: This large and multifaceted project consisted of a series of waterfalls fifty feet wide and just about as long, two ponds connected by a stream and midstream upflow bog which has stepping stones for close viewing of extensive aquatic plantings. We constructed this project with Chester Hollow Water Gardens.

During construction the project looks nothing like the finished pondless waterfall.  At its completion all of the 45mil EPDM fish safe liner is neatly tucked away leaving only natural stone, wood, plants and water…

Northern Nursery, Hartland, VT: Pondless waterfall

This (quartz-mica-schist) is not a stone type that we typically utilize, aged granite would have given a more natural New England flair to this feature, but a rock garden helps to blend stones with the  soil.  It will be interesting to see how this feature matures over time.
