That looks really great, just the sort of thing that I was looking for last year, but I was told that the pump needed to be removed during the winter - it can get a bit chilly at times!
hi hj .the way this pondless waterfall works .it only takes 5 minutes to take out of the pipe housing the pump,there is usally 18 in of water above the pump in the pipe,so that much water wont freezeponddigger
hi,day 2 at pondless water consponddigger
filling the bason with water.covered the pipe with sandstone slab
started building the waterfall and stream.pond liner and underlay first then the stonework
this is what i use instead of mortar,to fill the joints in the stone work,so a to make the water run over the stonework
hi, here is a little video about waterfall foam.ponddigger
Hey thats looking really good
You make it look so easy and as though its a walk in the park lol. That foam stuff seems to be the way to go as well. Alot easier instead of cement which takes ages. So how long before the water is flowing now then?
Thanks Ponddigger. My brain is working and now am thinking of something a bit more adventurous lol. I quite fancy water down a tree stump or over stone. Im assuming its the same principle???
hi sam ,go for it ,will you post some photos of you pondless construction,if ye have any questions i will try to answer themponddigger
hi sam.i use a plastic pipe or plastic barell.i drill holes in them.i put the pump into them.the water can flows easily into them.so a handy pump will doponddigger

you can have a pond in any size garden,they are no hassle,I have a small pond in a very small space of a front garden and a bigger pond in my back garden that's long and narrow.
hi fr.any photos of your little pond in your front gardenponddigger
A small pond was added into the garden about 18 months ago, since then I've seen toads in there a few times. It now resembles more of a ditch but here's a picture of it in Sept 2011 with accompanying picture of toad last year
I was very pleased that one morning, there were two of them
That looks like a frog to me (see my avatar). Toad have a warty skin and a less pointy 'face'.
