Three main types of Water Features.
"Since about 1988 I have been building water features. I have seen a lot of changes in how they are constructed and over time have developed 3 types of water features, pondless, pools and free standing." Ken focuses on helping people choose the best water feature for their area and their budget.

The Gentle River
Gentle rapids wind and flow gently down a small incline before ending in a decorative pond. A wide variety of foliage and many different sizes of stone surround this wonderful oasis in your own back yard.
Three sandstone blocks tower over the field of decorative gravel. Water flows from the top of all three block and trickles down over the rocks creating a gentle, soothing sound with great aesthetics.
Three Great Water Feature Styles
Pondless water features became popular after the people who had ponds got tired of the maintenance associated with ponding. Pondless water features have water flowing down as a stream or falling and crashing as in a waterfall but ending in gravel filled underground basin instead of a pond. Basically we fill the pond in with gravel and eliminate maintenance and risk associated with open water.
The big advantage of the pond or ponding as it is called is in the growth of beautiful water plants and fish. Many find great pleasure in the nurture of stunning flowers and the fun of watching fish grow in size and friendliness. I have seen great glee and excitement of children and adults when feeding their fish. It’s like having a giant aquarium outdoors with beautifully colored water friends.
Free standing water features have gained a lot of popularity as the combine the beauty of the movement of water with the sound of the splash. These features do not have to be large and are often movable in that event.
