Disappearing Landscape Waterfalls

One Of The Hottest Trends In Water Gardening


For many people in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, the terms "Pondless Waterfalls" or "Disappearing Waterfalls" or "Vanishing Waterfalls" are still not fully understood, or how their additions can benefit in the landscape. For those looking for low-maintenance landscape, or water feature ideas, a Pondless waterfall may be just the right solution! Waterfalls are perhaps the most beautiful feature in a water garden. You can argue that you love your fish the most, or that your gorgeous water lilies are the favorite part of your pond, or your underwater pond lighting looks spectacular at night, but the waterfall is what really makes it special.


Not only is it beautiful, but it also serves a valuable purpose in your ecosystem, by aerating the water for your fish and holding the beneficial bacteria that keeps your pond algae free. But could a waterfall survive without a pond? Sure it can. And the concept of a waterfall minus the pond is called “The Disappearing Pondless® Waterfall.”​


It might be difficult to imagine a waterfall and stream, without a pond. Where does the water go? A Pondless Waterfall works much like a regular pond. The hole, deeper than a normal pond, is dug then lined with rock and gravel, and filled with water. The water is then circulated from beneath the rocks and gravel, by a pump that sits on the bottom, and into an overflowing waterfall, where it falls back into the reservoir. Since the water level never pools above the level of the rock and gravel fill, it give the appearance of a waterfall without a pond, when in fact, the “pond” is there, but not visible.​ A Disappearing Pondless Waterfall has made many Charlotte, North Carolina (NC) area water-lovers, who were previously unable to indulge in the sweet sounds of falling water, very happy.

We attend Aquascape training and events every chance we get, keeping us on top of new industry trends, products and construction techniques.


Pondless, (Also called Disappearing), water feature systems are perfect for schools, businesses and those who want a front yard water feature, travel frequently, have young children or limited space. It's called a disappearing pondless waterfall because the water does not form a pond, but instead disappears into an underground pondless reservoir beneath rock and gravel.


The water is pumped to the waterfall or rock fountain, and disappears into the pondless basin, which contains the pump chamber and pump. These water features can also have a stream incorporated into the design for added interest. The modular equipment in the pondless waterfall basin beneath the rocks and gravel is strong enough for more than ten adults to stand on. Contact us to learn more.
