Our names are Jonny and April, and we are from Barnsley in the north of England. We recently moved into a brand-new property with a rectangle of grass for a garden. Over the last five months we have transformed the garden into the beginnings of a tropical paradise, the main feature being the pondless waterfall. Neither of us had ever undertaken a garden project before; however, we have completed all of the work ourselves through the use of YouTube videos and online articles for assistance.
This view reveals a better look at the waterfall and the beautiful stone paths. There is a great transition from the formal pavers of the sitting area to the more informal gravel paths in the rest of the garden. And the waterfall makes a great statement; I bet it sounds great too!
This waterfall design is pondless, meaning that instead of having an attached pond the waterfall flows into, it simply is pumped up from a hidden reservoir. This offers the beauty of a waterfall but in less space and without the maintenance of a pond.
