Earthen Pond Solution


About a month ago I received a call from the homeowners to provide them with an estimate for the installation of a waterfall on their existing pond. After talking with the homeowners, one main thing that upset them was the amount of maintenance that the pond requires in the fall of the year.

This past week we installed a natural skimmer on the pond that feeds a constructed wetland filter which cascades down a thirty foot long waterfall and returns back to the one acre pond. Take notice the amount of leaves in the before pictures versus the after pictures. Next spring we will install wetland plantings as well as a sub-surface aeration system.
