Adding Large Waterfalls to Natural Ponds
Having a body of water near your home can be incredibly relaxing. Ponds on your property can give your home a calming and natural feel. If a pond can bring that to your home, then imagine what a waterfall can do to the space.
Not only does water create a wonderful ambiance, but the sound that rushing water creates is something that we are innately drawn to as humans. Your yard should be your oasis. A place that you can go to relax with friends or family. So, imagine the added aesthetic of a beautiful waterfall running into your natural pond. It doesn’t get much more beautiful than that.
Constructing a large waterfall to add to your natural pond may be somewhat of a grand project, but a waterfall is actually a great addition to a pond. It keeps the pond cleaner and healthier and adds beauty and peace to your outdoor area. Of course, there are quite a few things to keep in mind such as the size, placement, and layout of your waterfall, but there are several benefits to adding a large waterfall to your natural pond. Let’s look at what they are:
- A waterfall will provide natural aeration and movement for your pond, keeping it functioning properly and looking its best. Ponds are natural ecosystems, and a waterfall helps to naturally clean and protect it. The churning water helps to oxygenate the pond which increases the quality of life for the fish and plants.
- It will increase filtration of the pond. When you install a waterfall, a skimmer system can be installed as well, collecting debris that accumulates on the surface. Your pond will look much clearer and cleaner. However, the filtration doesn’t stop there. As the water is filtered back up to the top of the waterfall, it can be passed through an artificial wetland system and exposed to beneficial bacteria, which then filter back into the pond.
- Of course, one of the more obvious benefits is the beauty and tranquility that it can bring to your garden area. If you live in a city, or even in the suburbs, life can be hectic. Giving yourself a soothing oasis is an excellent way to unwind and feel far away from the hustle and bustle of the city life.
