For your pondless waterfall, we will construct a solid foundation and create the infrastructure for the electrical source and pump to create a magical flow of water with natural beauty.

Plant and Fish Life

Once you choose a pond, let us enhance the banks around the water with plant life. We'll add plants to the interior of the pond to help aerate the water and keep it healthy while also providing a comfortable environment for fish or frogs. Implement Japanese koi or goldfish to take care of mosquitos, adding beauty to your pond while eliminating pesky bugs.

Repairs and Maintenance

The climate of Cedar Rapids, Iowa includes hot summers and cold winters which can take a toll on your pond without proper maintenance. The heat of the sun can grow algae in the water, and winters can bring freezing temperatures and ice that can damage your pump or waterfall’s structure.
