Ecosystem Pond

Check out this amazing disappearing waterfalls. This project included tons of amazing features throughout. The highlight is without a doubt the grand disappearing waterfalls. The waterfall is final stop on a journey through a backyard pond like you’ve never seen. As you can tell from the before picture we certainly had our work cut out for us. The water feature included a large ecosystem pond. A small wetland filter begins the journey into the large ecosystem pond. One of the ponds most noticeable features is the two bubbling urn fountains. Stepping-stones are set through the pond. The stepping-stones take you from the back patio through the pond. Natural stone steps then lead into the yard.A zero edge waterfall was installed at the ponds end leading to the stream. Drift wood was incorporated to soften and naturalize the pond. This is typical protocol during our pond construction.

Disappearing Waterfalls

The stream then flows underneath a large natural stone bridge. The bridge connects large steps leading to the patio area. on the other side of the bridge is a large natural stone stairway. After flowing underneath the bridge the water enters the grand falls. This large multiple tier disappearing waterfalls are quite breathtaking. This is just another example of what sets C.E. Pontz Sons apart from the competition. The final waterfalls then disappear into a pondless waterfall basin. The basin then recycles the water up through the wetland to further filter the pond water. Boulder retaining walls were also installed as well as landscaping lighting.

Boulder Retaining Walls

The first natural stone boulder retaining wall was build to bring up the grade. The grade adjustment allowed for a fairly level service to begin excavation for the pond. With the use of the wall and natural stone steps we were able to achieve desired elevations. A second boulder retaining wall was installed as well. This wall helped to retain soil and ease the steep grade which would eventually be sod.
