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

Wow...that is stunning. Is that the same way of doing a bubbling cobble water feature?

hi, here is a little video about waterfall foam.ponddigger 

Oakley Witch

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?

ponddigger

hi sam .it takes about 2 hours for the waterfall foam to cure,you can run water after that.these kind of pondless are easy to build if you follow some easy stepsponddigger  ps here is the video where i learnt to build them

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???

I will that. Notvsure when ibwill be starting it but will be before april. Does the pump need to be very strong to come up through a medium stone or cobble? I am plannin a solar panel pump if pos cause i hsve ne lecky down there.

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 do

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

Thats really bonnie hollie. Thats the kind of thing im looking for as well as a wee bubbling cobble. What plants have you got in it? Is it still with oxygenating plants? How do you keep it so clear?
