Are you interested in a water feature for your yard, but concerned about the safety, liabilities, or maintenance of having a pond? We have the answer for you! Pondless Waterfalls are simply a re-circulating waterfall and/or stream without the pond.  You can enjoy the sight and sound of running water without the maintenance of a pond.

The waterfall is undoubtedly the most beautiful and favored feature in a water garden. If space is lacking in your yard or you have safety concerns with a pond, a Pondless Waterfall could be right for you!

The name basically explains it all. It’s a waterfall and stream, without the pond. Why would you want a waterfall without a pond? The truth is that a Pondless Waterfall isn’t for everyone, but it can be a great alternative for someone who isn’t quite sure if a pond is right for their family.

Safety- Because there is no pool of water, a Pondless Waterfall is a great option if you are concerned about safety issues associated with a traditional pond.

Cost- Cost can be a big factor when considering the type of pond you want to build. In almost all cases, the price of a Pondless waterfall will be less than a pond, because there is less labor, as well as less rock and materials. Operating costs are also less, and because you’re not dealing with an established ecosystem, it’s not necessary to run the pump 24/7.

Space- The small size of the Pondless Waterfall means you can build and enjoy a beautiful waterfall almost anywhere in your yard.

Maintenance – Taking care of your Pondless Waterfall is easy. Checking & filling the reservoir every few weeks to compensate for evaporated water loss is all that’s required.

Flexibility- Perhaps the best part of the Pondless Waterfall is the possibility for the future. If you change your mind later, wishing you’d built a pond, that’s ok! If you leave enough room around the base of the waterfall, it’s easy to add a pond onto a Pondless Waterfall.

Complete System- It might be difficult to imagine a waterfall and stream without a pond. Where does the water go? A Pondless Waterfall works much like a regular pond. The hole, deeper than a normal pond, is dug, then lined with rock and gravel, and filled with water. The water is then circulated from beneath the rocks and gravel by a pump that sits on the bottom, inside a water vault. A pipe runs from there up to a filter and into an overflowing waterfall, where it travels down the falls and back into the reservoir. Since the water level never pools above the level of the rock and gravel fill, it give the appearance of a waterfall without a pond, when in fact, the “pond” is there but not visible.


The Pondless Waterfall has made many water-lovers who were previously unable to indulge in the sweet sounds of falling water, very happy. It’s a great choice for those who are looking to fit a little bit of paradise into their own backyard.
