Pond & Waterfall Design/Installation

Water features divide themselves into decorative projects or water gardens. The distinction is that a water garden contains life, while a decorative feature (including most waterfalls) does not. This choice is your first major decision and needs to be made before you start considering how to build your water feature.

Each type has its own characteristics that must be considered:

Decorative Features Water Gardens
Formal or informal in shape Typically freeform in shape
Suitable pool depth to cover pump Suitable depth not to freeze or overheat
May use an automatic water fill Sensitive to evaporation
Use any nozzle that works with pool size & shape Nozzles avoided in small ponds
May use bleach or non-foaming algaecide Limited chemicals (use plants!)
A pump intake screen may be sufficient Potentially elaborate mech./bio filters

Example #1: Q: "Can I put that neat looking nozzle in my fish pond?" A: A fine droplet spray nozzle would be fine in a decorative fountain, but in a water garden it will: 1. Plug with fish waste; 2. Increase evaporation, leading to greater concentration of dissolved solids and potential nitrate toxicity; 3. Disrupt the growth and blooming of aquatic plants.

Example #2: Q: "Can I throw a few goldfish in the fountain for the kids?" A: Well, this means: 1. You can't use bleach or algaecide anymore; 2. Your pump intake screen won't cut it as a filter; 3. Your fountain may be small, above grade or too shallow to let the fish winter or endure summer heat; 4. The site may suffer from storm runoff, inadequate sunlight for plants, or ease of doing things like cleaning and partial drain/fills.

Site Planning and Pool Material

After selecting the type of project, consider the site location, and construction materials. A pool under a tree may seem picturesque, but will fill with leaves during the fall, and if built out of flexible liner may get punctured by roots.

Here is our humble experience with different pool materials:

Fittings/ penetrations Poor Fair One Chance Fair Fair Excellent
Reliability (general) Fair Good Good Fair Good Excellent
Reliability (winter) Poor Excellent (cracks) (brittle) Very Good Very Good
Overall Results Poor Good Fair Fair Good Very Good

Your pond should have a raised edge to avoid storm runoff that can run into the pool. This is very important with water gardens where the fish can be killed by insecticides or other chemicals. Winterization should be planned for in advance of freezing conditions. Your site will need a source of electricity for its pump. Submersible equipment must have Ground Fault Circuit Interruption (GFCI) protection, as well as have its other aspects of installation conform to Article 680 of the National Electric Code.

WATERFALLS, WATER GARDENS AND PONDS

Water features are often included in landscape designs because of the unique sights and sounds that they bring to both exterior and interior living spaces. Many people find a moment of peace as they listen to water splashing in a fountain and gurgling over rocks as it runs down to a waiting pond. The use of ponds, aquatic plants, fish and water features in landscapes is sometimes called water gardening.

There is a wealth of information available about water gardens, ponds and waterfalls because aquatic gardens have been used in landscapes for thousands of years. From ancient Egypt to the neighbor next door, people have been enjoying the musical sounds of waterfalls and the slow but deliberate movement of fish in ponds since the beginning of civilization.
