Why install a disappearing waterfall? There are many reasons why a pond-less waterfall, otherwise known as a disappearing waterfall, would be more appealing than a pond. 

  • You can design a stunning outdoor space without the hassle of cleaning a pond.
  • If you travel a lot or go on vacation, you can still have a beautiful bit of nature to come home to without worrying about maintenance.
  • Plus, a disappearing waterfall is safe to have around pets and small children.

If you have been thinking about creating an outdoor space to relax in but don’t have the time or the space for a pond, then a pond-less water feature may be suitable for you.

Here are 5 reasons why you should install a disappearing waterfall!

Takes Up Less Space

A disappearing waterfall takes up less space and can be customized to fit anywhere. The process to install a pond-less water feature is pretty simple. A shallow reservoir should be adequate as it only needs to be one to two feet deep. Plan for a space deep enough to sufficiently hold enough water for the pump to work. You can choose how much of a presence you want the feature to have in your outdoor space by controlling the flow of water.

Easy to Maintain

To care for a pond is like a hobby because it will be a labor of love. A pond with life in it, like fish and plants, takes more regular maintenance than a pond-less water feature. You will not need to monitor the water of a disappearing waterfall as closely because the water is continuously moving. Also, you can use chemicals to keep the water crystal clear and a beautiful color. A disappearing waterfall is one of the easiest ways to enjoy the soothing sound of running water!

Good For Small Children

A pond-less waterfall will be a great choice if you have small children or pets because it is safer. There will not be a large body of water on your property, so it is less risky to have small children around. Pets and children may fall into a larger pond. 

Many Style and Size Options

You will be able to decorate your pond-less water feature with large boulders conveniently placed to create pleasing splashing sounds and visually appealing plants between the stones. A variety of plants will thrive in the moist soil near your water feature. Creating a lush and natural scene will be simple and look impressive!

Less Cost

Additionally, a small waterfall will cost significantly less than a larger pond. You won’t need to run the pump 24 hours a day and that will decrease electricity costs.
