waterfall has benefits that extend beyond simple beauty.
It aerates ponds, and it also discourages the breeding of mosquitoes
by breaking up stagnant water.
To set up a waterfall at your pond, you may choose to
hire a contractor. Of course, if you built your pond yourself, you
are likely going to be able to build your own pond waterfall just
Before you start building, think of the structure you
desire. How wide and tall to you want it to be. Will you be insetting
it into a hill, or do you need to create your own height for the water
to descend from? Do you want to use a spillway?
The basic items that you will need is a liner and a
pump. Get a liner that is larger than the area you plan to have the
water cascade over. For the pump, you need to figure out the height
of the waterfall (distance between the pump and the top of the falls)
and what the required flow rate will be. Check the pumps to find out
which will be the best to power your pond waterfall.
Don't be afraid to take your time setting up the falls. It will be
worth it. Just picture yourself resting all day beside the bubbling
falls, enjoying the weather and the beautiful scenery that your pond
waterfall from Pond Depot helped create.
