Who isn't impressed with a stream or waterfall? And if it's alive with plants and organic water, that wow factor is greatly multiplied!
Sustainable Design Concepts
The water used to sustain a re-circulating pondless waterfall or stream is much less than a standard lawn! AND, you don't have to mow it, blow it, de-thatch it, or fertilize it. Such a deal!
Naturally clean water
By taking advantage of an ecosystem design, the water is clean, clear, and biologically available for local wildlife.
Low energy needs
It doesn't take a herculean pump to circulate the water, keeping energy costs low to operate.
Serviceable design, low maintenance needs
There's really not much maintenance to a living stream or waterfall. You simply garden it occasionally -- less work than many other landscape options!
Can be tied in with storm water control
Yep, it can be made even MORE sustainable with the use of the latest technology in rainwater harvesting or storm water management.
Repairs & Upgrades are a Cinch
Using a flexible system makes repairs simple, and upgrades easy as pie. After all, a garden is never REALLY done, is it?
Easy Addition to an Existing Landscape
A flexible system design makes for a clean, seamless insertion into existing landscapes. Your family, friends & neighbors will wonder how on earth you managed to find a house next to a creek!
