Pondless water features

Pondless water features

Water features add allure to any landscape and homeowners across Mentor, Eastlake and Willowick are adding fountains, ponds and waterfalls to their property. But most of these are high maintenance as the accumulated water makes frequent cleaning necessary. And so, if you like water features but want to do away with all the hassle associated with maintaining it, opt for a pondless water feature. This kind of an element gives you the best of both worlds.

Significant Benefits

You are able to enjoy the sound and ambiance that a waterfall or fountain creates, but it will not have a pond at its base. This is truly a huge convenience for many homeowners in and around Painesville who do not want to be saddled with extra maintenance on their property. Let’s take a look at the benefits of opting for a pondless water feature:

Pondless water features
  • Space Saver- Any water feature that does not have a pond at its base, is a great space saver and can be accommodated on the smallest of decks and patios. Pools Patios Ponds can integrate these features very easily into almost any space in your home.

  • Flexibility- Another important feature of a pondless water feature is that if you do feel like adding a pond to it at a later date, you can do so very easily. This flexibility is what adds to its appeal.

  • Ease of Maintenance- This is probably the biggest benefits of a pondless water feature. There is no accumulated water and there will also be no fish or aquatic plants to take care of and you do not have to worry about spending your weekends cleaning out the moss and dirt in the pond.

  • Water Conservation- Since an entire pond does not get filled and the same water that flows down the waterfall/fountain gets circulated via the pump, you end up conserving a lot of water.

  • Safety- Many homeowners have concerns about their children or pets falling into the ponds. Having a pondless water feature negates all those worries and affords you peace of mind. The water that cascades down gets drained through the base-rock into a cistern and there is no pooling of water above the surface at all.

Pondless water features
  • Energy Conservation- You will not require a filter/pump running full time. These are very essential if you have a pond ecosystem with plants and fish. You can keep a handle on your hydro bill by turning off the motor whenever you wish. This also makes it more environment-friendly.

  • Cost-Effective- Apart from the money that you save on electricity and water bills, there is some more cost –saving associated with a this water feature. Since we will not have to dig the ground to create a pond, the complete construction and installation is more cost-effective.

With so many benefits, it’s not a surprise that many homeowners in Painesville are now opting for a pondless water feature.
