The waterfall is undoubtedly the most beautiful and favoured feature in a water garden. If you would love a water feature, but space is limited, Pondless Waterfalls are an attractive option.

Pondless Waterfalls are simply a re-circulating waterfall and/or stream without the presence of a pond. They easily fit into any corner of the landscape to add the sight and sound of running water. They’re great for families with small children or for people who don’t want the maintenance of a pond. Here are five reasons why Pondless Waterfalls are awesome:

Very Safe

Because there is no pool of water, a Pondless Waterfall is a great option if you are at all concerned about safety issues associated with a traditional body of water on your property.


In most cases, the price of a Pondless Waterfall is less than a pond, because there is less labor and materials involved. Operating costs are also lower; because you’re not dealing with an established ecosystem pond, it’s not necessary to run the pump 24/7.


The compact nature of the Pondless Waterfall allows you to create a water feature in challenging landscapes. You can enjoy the sight and sound of running water in your yard, regardless of space limitations.

Easy to Maintain

Taking care of your Pondless Waterfall is easy. Filling the reservoir every few weeks to compensate for water loss due to evaporation is all that’s required.


Perhaps the best part of the Pondless Waterfall is the potential for expansion. Once you’ve gotten your feet wet with a beautiful water feature from Streamworks Designs, it is easy to add a pond at the base of a Pondless Waterfall.
