Pondless Waterfalls a Growing Trend in Jacksonville

A few of the benefits are:

  • Child-safe - certain water features, like pondless waterfalls, are much more child-safe than ponds. Because there is no pool of water, there is no place where a child could drown. Yes, your child could get wet in a pondless waterfall (and make sure that he or she uses caution when playing around the slippery rocks), but drowning is not such an issue.
  • Not stagnant - another benefit of pondless waterfalls is that they do not have any stagnant water. Therefore they offer no place for mosquitoes to lay their larvae.
  • Cleaner - waterfalls and fountains and bubblers are often much cleaner, clearer, and less smelly than basic fish ponds.
  • Care - pondless water features are generally easier to care for than fish ponds. After all, you are not trying to keep anything alive!
