A Pondless® Waterfall is a recirculating waterfall or stream without the presence of a pond that adds beauty and elegance to your backyard. DIY waterfalls offer opportunities to relax and unwind and provide refreshment for birds and butterflies.

Pondless Waterfalls can be easily installed almost anywhere in your yard and have a simple recirculation system that requires very little maintenance.
