Outdoor Waterfall Features

Custom waterfalls made with lightweight fiberglass provides infinite possibilities to get a completely custom-crafted waterfall for the home and garden.

Outdoor Water Features

The versatility of artificial rocks (also referred to as faux, fake, or imitation rocks) allows landscape contractors to create beautiful waterfalls for their clients. Typically these contractors serve a very niche market comprised of wealthy home owners.

There is very little that compares to having a miniature resort in your own backyard. People have a tendency to be drawn to waterfalls. Rock waterfall contractors simply recreate that effect for you from the comfort of your home.

Faux rocks can come in virtually any colour by using different natural rock powders. Their colour can even be changed using paint year after year. Change from one color to another with ease. Paint spray guns work well for this and the mixture of several different colors is recommended.

Normally the biggest barrier that we find our customers face is that they don’t have the budget for something spectacular. The industry average cost for custom crafted work all things considered can be $400+ per square foot. We often have deals going on where we do it for less than half of that. The competition is essentially those miniature fountain statues that you buy off Ebay. However, some people want something much larger that fits well in their yard.

Landscape Water Features

Have you been recently inspired to add a water feature fountain or waterfall to your garden? Whether you like vanishing ponds, pondless waterfalls, or just a trickling fountain to some sounds of nature, your options are endless.

Landscape water features are typically for the more advanced garden project as regular maintenance is often required in order for the fountains to look appealing. They have long symbolized the architectural and design ability of cities both modern and ancient. Moreover waterfalls found in nature have always been intriguing to human beings. Many are drawn to them because there is just something about the look and sound of falling water. It is now possible to create miniature waterfalls to be enjoyed in your own garden for as often as you like.

When properly maintained and constructed, a landscape garden water feature can increase your home’s property value. This means you can enjoy your water feature at no cost until such a time when you decide to sell your home while recouping your initial investment and then some. It also doesn’t hurt that your home will stand out from the rest. The work that goes into creating a water feature for your garden pays off for many years as you entertain guests, hold parties, sit outside by the patio, or even while relaxing indoors with the windows open. It just helps to relax and unwind beside the waterfall while your stress melts away.

Swimming Pool Water Features

Much in the same way as the water is cycled from a cascading waterfall feature or pondless waterfall, a pool waterfall cycles water back from the pool. The result is a spectacular visual of falling water. Ask people who already own a waterfall for their pool and most will say they cannot imagine not having one.

Fountains
Fountains are a beautiful sight to behold. This is especially true for spectacular water shows combined with lighting. They can be an excellent addition to the frontyard welcoming your guests.

Pondless Waterfalls
Most modern waterfall fountains including the ones made by WaterfallNow are often self-contained. Rather than constantly wasting water, the existing water is cycled through by a pump over and over to create the falling water effect. The hidden reservoir known for its relation to invisible waterfalls or ‘pondless waterfalls’ are a good choice due to their low maintenance requirements. The small water reserve is out of sight and out of mind so you don’t need to deal with green pea soup or the swampy looking water that many other water features are plagued with.

Indoor And Outdoor Fountains
Water features come in all shapes and sizes. Some that are purchased online were manufactured in China. Others may be made in Canada or locally in general. If you like to spend your time both indoors and outdoors then a small portable water feature might be what you are looking for. These can typically be found online and manufactured from China. (WN plans to add a selection for them on this website in the future).

Do It Yourself Landscape Water Features (DIY)
An increasingly popular option is to create your own water feature using existing junk materials from the garden. Water feature fountains can be made from common materials such as granite, aluminum, fibreglass, concrete, glass, GFRC, brick, wood, marble and any other materials. These are just some of the materials one can use and there is no actual limit to the type of materials one can use to create a fountain. An increasingly popular item is the basalt rock column. Simply drill a hole into a rock, create the pond, add some plumbing, and you are good to go. Simple is key.

The Growth In Surrey Is Amazing: Watch Out Vancouverites

The thousands of KM’s added onto my ride in the past week just from all the short drives throughout the Lower Mainland was a real wake up call. Perhaps it is time to switch to an electric car… Then again, 11MPG was never good to begin with! Back to the point though, I did notice a lot of nice houses being built all over Surrey. By nice I mean massive with 5 car garages and sheds the size of what I used to consider a big size home.

And yes it was slightly embarrassing at first to knock on the door of a shed that nobody lives in and then hear the owner laughing from his window from the main home 3 stories high probably thinking what an idiot I am thinking people live in the shed. The point is, these are some big houses.

While we get many referrals please do me one favor and don’t put a dog house just beside the front door and where you don’t notice it until you see the pearly whites. I still can’t help but get out of the car while driving sometimes and putting doorhangers up. Making rock features can be addictive and I am on rehab from that addiction. My partners now do the artwork and create that blueprint in your glorious head.

I’ve been through half of the neighborhoods in West Vancouver and can say that some of the homes being built south of Surrey are coming to par. There is still much room for improvement. While many of the newer homes being build in Surrey look impressive in size, many are nothing more than a larger cookie cutter. Hopefully we will see more unique architecture like what you can find in Shaughnessy, Vancouver, BC.

Architecture does hold importance to me because it means that some people out there are still striving for the best and to do what hasn’t yet been done. They know that the best designs, ideas, and projects have not even been created. This is inspiring. That is why I appreciate seeing something unique that showcases some of the designers creativity. Don’t take this to mean that uniqueness in itself is a virtue. The finished product has to look good to most people and be a 10 on the wow factor.

Holy Cow…. What happened here? Public washroom?

If you haven’t heard already, Surrey will be the new Vancouver. The population of Surrey is expected to surpass that of Vancouver in 5-10 years. Just in time for 2020. The new city hall erected in Surrey which they spent $97 million dollars on (caused some controversy) reflects the vision that the leaders have for this city. It is an exciting time for people living in East of the bridge(s).

“Successful Official Grand Opening Of Aria Banquet And Convention Centre Saturday June 21, 2014” – The Mayor of the City of Surrey gave it high praise stating that it is the best she has seen in over 18 years of visiting different banquet halls and convention centres in BC. Read More: http://waterfallnow.com/tag/aria-banquet-hall-and-convention-centre/

The Surrey that I’ve come back to in the past few years was not like the Surrey I remembered half a decade prior and I’m sure that change will be exponential moving forward.¬† I’m sure there will be some issues with overpopulation

While Surrey and White Rock are without the natural landscapes, forests, cliffsides, and creeks that are present in many homes in West Vancouver (natural rock formations take millions of years to become that way), it has many acres of flat agricultural land. That’s fine because I like blueberries. Too much land to even know I was there :D. Just kidding. Stealing is bad.

So basically, much of this land is being quickly bought up and new houses are going up all over the place. I have no idea just how big of a change we will see in the next 5 to 10 years in Surrey’s development but it will be a sight to behold.

WaterfallNow has plenty of customers to pick from. What we really want is to start doing something different each time. We don’t want to get to a point where we stop pushing the limits. I believe that someone in the Lower Mainland has the most amazing blueprint in their mind right now and just doesn’t realize it yet. Come share your crazy ideas with us.

I’ve toured some of the most expensive homes in BC and sadly, many of them did not have a water feature or had one but stopped paying for the maintenance. WaterfallNow’s rock fountains, waterfalls, and water features can be designed in such a way that they require no maintenance, recycle rainwater, and can run on low energy consumption setting with an autostop timer for even further benefit.

Then again, custom water features aren’t cheap. They are expensive, a luxury item, and that is the point right? Well, yes and no. WaterfallNow hopes to strike a balance between the two extremes of luxury vs cheap. We aren’t that cheap and we aren’t that luxurious. We are somewhere in the middle at least for now. Why do we have such low pricing? Well, it is because we hate turning people away.

“It is not joy that makes us grateful. It is gratitude that makes us joyful.” David Rast

Profound stuff…

If you have been planning on getting a rock fountain or water feature for your garden now is the best time to do it. Our Spring Specials won’t be around forever. It’s called a “Spring” Special for a reason ūüėÄ

We are blessed to have a very loyal and successful client base that love showing off their rock fountains. Also, if you require a check-up or think it is time to replace your water pump just give us a call and we will come and fix it for you.

Updates At Aria Underway

Excalibur Bowling has closed down because they did not wish to renew their lease. So the largest banquet hall and convention centre in Surrey, Canada is going there instead. It is expected to open by the end of April.

We are building a rock wall for a section on the inside of the building as well as a rock pillar.

Maybe you mean: 'Gallery' or 'water walls canada'

Building of the two rock water feature fountains on the outside have commenced. Once the rocks are completely assembled, pumps are installed, and lighting is added, it will look very different from the photos below.

New photos and videos will be added shortly thereafter. Feel free to add the banquet hall on Facebook.

Faux Stone Veneer Panels

WaterfallNow will also manufacture faux stone veneer panels for clients in BC and Alberta.

Sample of an plastic veneer panel (texture only) Can make a mold and cast  faux stone veneer panels with concrete, fibreglass, GFRC etc.

WaterfallNow can custom create any faux stone veneer panels for use in any application. These are an excellent choice for home construction for both indoor and outdoor applications. Not only do they look great but they last long, don’t fade, don’t crack, and don’t split. Use them on walls, around a fireplace, as a retaining wall cover, or even as part of a water wall feature.

Because faux stone veneer panels do not require the customization of our rock water features they are something that we offer as is. Installation of veneer panels is easy enough. They are lightweight and don’t involve the hassle of carrying real stone.

WaterfallNow can offer clients any style of faux stone veneer panels. Send us an idea or sample of what you would like and we can create some samples. Alternatively you can bring existing samples to us and we will re-create them for you. Fake rock veneer panels great and are increasing in popularity for a reason. They are a great addition to any renovation project – transforming the look and feel of any room.

The rock colour, desired thickness, use of concrete or fibreglass, and even sizing can all be customized according to the clients needs. In some cases you may even find yourself spending less than a fraction of what you would have spent otherwise.

How easy it is to install. No messing around with concrete, getting the carpets dirty, or anything like that. You can check out fauxpanels.com

WaterfallNow believes that some things are meant to change. Gone are the days of having to hire hundreds of different people to have something installed. Doing so cuts into the budget.

Before you think ‘oh here we go another guy preaching how to cut corners,’ just hear me out. The cost of … Everything.. has gone up. It isn’t about cutting corners and taking shortcuts but maximizing the cost-efficiency of what you have to work with. This includes means paying more for energy efficient appliances or lighting. Just think long-term. This cost savings can ultimately be a benefit to the home-buyer.

What could be worse than someone buy a home that you built, not because they like the house, but because they like the location, and seeing them renovate what you thought was ‘built to standard.’

Builders especially, are looking to use their existing crews who they already trust to get the work done themselves. That is not to say that there aren’t problems associated with this as I will mention later.

While most trades require skill and experience, respect must also be given to the growing DIY (do it yourself) movement. More homeowners, landlords, and builders are looking to save money and increase their returns on investment by investing their time more wisely.

In certain cases it may take less than a few hours to install a false rock wall using faux stone veneer panels. No mess and no damage to the flooring. They last long, look clean & uniform, and are easy enough for the ‘do-it-yourselfers’ to manage on their own.

We like the idea of faux stone veneer panels and have employed their use on a number of applications. They are definitely a growing trend and are appearing on many new homes. We just ask that should you install these to ensure that you fill in the gaps.

What I’ve been noticing in many new development projects throughout Surrey, Vancouver, and in other parts of the Lower Mainland is that sometimes these panels are not adhered correctly! Often on more than one house in a row!

I should point out that faux stone veneer panels look beautiful but only when they appear natural. When a person cannot tell from afar or up close that they are made with faux rock panels it is generally a sign that the installer did a good job. If however a person can see from far away that the application is peeling away as I have seen then you may want to address that issue to prevent the same from happening on future houses.

Faux Stone Veneer Panels are NOT a Shortcut!!!

The combination of weathering from rain, sunlight, snow, and freeze-thaw can slowly warp or peel faux stone veneer panels that weren’t properly adhered away from the structure resulting in an ugly appearance. The result? It looks cheap and gives off an air of poor quality work to prospective homebuyers who will then view the rest of the home with even more skepticism.

Would you not wonder yourself if those who built the home didn’t also cut corners on other parts of the home as well? Perhaps on the roofing or plumbing?

I have learned a thing or two about sales and how to sell from being a customer. Selling homes just like selling a car, service, or a product is not about hard sales – which can lose you the sale. It is more about being consultative, providing great support, treating the client with a friendly demeanor, being honest, open, caring, and having a keen eye attention to the details. Ultimately the mantra that we buy from those who we ‘know, like, and trust’ holds true. Moreover, this is one of the reasons why profitable businesses are those that have a large referral base.

Just as you would want someone else to go through some work you’ve done who can give you a fresh perspective you may also want to get a few close people to analyze your newly finished home. Better they see the flaws and you correct them before putting the home up for sale and risk damaging your reputation.

While one or two small problems may not kill the deal they can certainly add up. Where there are a few there tend to be many. The industry professionals tend to have none altogether and they are the ones who can cater to a certain market of buyers that otherwise wouldn’t buy a home. It pays in the long-run to build things that will last for the long-term. Why? Because it can take 20 years to build a solid reputation and a just few minutes to destroy it for good.

On a more positive note, if you need some veneer panels either fake or with real rock feel free to contact us. Our connections are yours as well.

GFRC – Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete

WaterfallNow employs a similar method used in the production of many sinks, bathtubs, shower walls, and more. We utilize a blend of natural stone powders (to achieve the right pigment or texture for the application). We combine that with synthetic materials such as fiberglass (or fibreglass) to increase the strength multiple times over.

“Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete, also known as GFRC or GRC, is a type of fiber reinforced concrete. Glass fiber concretes are often used in exterior building fa√ßade panels or as architectural precast concrete. Somewhat similar materials are fiber cement siding and cement boards.” – Wiki

WaterfallNow has in the past utilized GFRC on applications for larger commercial projects but the price tag was often far too great for the average home owner.

Back in our landscaping days we noticed a large market for home owners who wanted a waterfall in their backyard. Often times we found that they settled on natural rock formations. We were the guys that people called to clean their green coloured ponds. Eventually they just told us to remove the pond and install fresh turf. This led us to believe that there had to be a better way.

We have tried all sorts of different methods for creating artificial rocks (believe me). Some of these methods might even remind some people of their grade school days… Think paper and styrofoam. Interestingly enough the styrofoam idea did work for a bit but we required something more scalable.

Eventually we turned to a lightweight and more ideal method of creating backyard waterfall features for our clients with fiberglass as the key ingredient. Each renovation project is a blank canvas for us to display our artwork.

This is not our video but this is what a GFRC Rock Panel typically looks like.

GFRC is much heavier than fiberglass and can be difficult to move once created. Our technique usually requires fiber materials, resins, chemical hardeners, natural stone powders, a mold, and some time.

You will see halfway through the video a sample of the rock mixture. This is the method WaterfallNow previously employed.

WaterfallNow’s rock panels have realistic rock textures

waterfallnow

Though the market for rock waterfalls is not yet as big in BC as in the US we know that overtime (just like our experience with artificial turf) we will create it. Moreover, we are positioning ourselves this year to make it a growing trend in Surrey. We look forward to partnering with others in the water features industry that are looking to spur this change in garden renovations.

Because our main market is for homeowners we had to find a different way that would offer more customization with half the cost to the client. We employ a method that is light enough to be cut or bent, strong enough to withstand natural elements, and looks better than the real thing. Perhaps in the future we will again employ GFRC if we get a request but it is no longer our focus.

There are many different variations for creating artificial rock panels and a wide variety of materials that can be used. In the end it all depends on what the client wants and exceeding their expectations to provide many great experiences.

Once you create some rock panels and begin putting them together, the possibilities are endless. This could potentially be a DIY project (at least half of the process).

Once the surrounding landscape is complete with plants, grass, trees, and lighting, this water feature will look very nice. Can be remote operated, moved to another location, and even painted to a different colour.

Water Features: A Backyard Oasis

Why consider having water features? Because they are awesome! If money or space was no object most people would be open to having one.

water features

There are many companies that create beautiful water features as a quick browse on YouTube should show. One such company is Aquascape. They create water features using natural stone. There are several methods of creating water features that range in price from very inexpensive to very expensive. Keep in mind however that it isn’t always the case that you get what you pay for. So why consider water features as part of the bigger picture of landscaping overall?

“Nearly 20% of buyers say they consider landscaping to be a ‚Äėvery important‚Äô factor in their decision to buy a house, according to a new study by the National Association of Realtors.” Wall Street Journal.¬† Selling Houses by the Yard.¬† August 17, 2007.

OK. 20% isn’t a big number but when the group was narrowed down to higher end homes that number increased significantly. After all, a luxury home just doesn’t feel the same without stunning landscaping work.

“Property adjacent to water ‚Äď whether a pond, lake, stream, river, or ocean ‚Äď is often more expensive.” Kaplan, Kaplan, and Ryan. With People in Mind: Design and Management of Everyday Nature, p. 113.

Adding some water features to the yard tends to increase property value provided that it looks good. It can also be a no-no when done in areas where there are only a few warm months. Fewer buyers want to deal with maintenance. Speaking of maintenance it is a good idea to install lawn sprinklers. For high end homes however, adding a pool may be advisable.

By digging a hole, laying some pond liner, throwing on some rocks, a pump, and some arranging you can create an inexpensive water feature. The downside to this method is of course the maintenance. It doesn’t take long for this method to start resembling green pea soup. Water features in the backyard of a home are often enjoyed during the Spring and Summer months. Weekend gatherings and BBQ’s on the patio can be more enjoyable when spent nearby a water feature. The sound of trickling water is soothing and reduces stress. This is good news as stress can trigger or act as a catalyst for many health related issues.

“‚Ķ Hospital patients who have a view of natural landscapes recover faster from surgery and require less pain medication.¬† In addition, heart rate, blood pressure, and other measures return to normal levels more quickly when people view natural rather than urban landscapes after a stressful experience.‚ÄĚ The Sustainable Sites Initiative. Standards & Guidelines: Preliminary Report.¬† November 1, 2007.

Similarly, those who have an aquarium with live fish in their homes may also experience these benefits. Maybe you have a blank slate, that is you’ve just bought some land and are drawing out plans for what it should look like. Do you prefer having a large lawn or do you prefer having a pond?

One of the major things to consider is the maintenance of a pond and whether or not you are willing to keep it in good shape. Unkempt ponds are unattractive, and are a breeding ground for many insects including mosquitoes. That is not to say however that homes should opt to go without a water feature altogether.

Not all water features require a pond. Homes with smaller yards often opt for pondless or invisible waterfalls. It is known by many that having water features improves a property’s value (as would a gazebo, patio, or a sundeck). But did you know that it is rated as one of the best ways to improve the appearance of your home?

Not too many things in a yard can stand out quite like a professionally crafted water feature. Our Custom Water features have a way of naturally drawing people towards them. Having a waterfall is a great way to showcase your home and make it stand out from the rest. Too many homes are being built using the same cookie cutter format all throughout major areas. It is nice to add a fresh landscaping concept to the mix from time to time.

Adding a water feature to an existing pool is considered going all out in most cases. It is easy to decide on whose yard people will hold their party at when there is someone with a pool with water features. There are too few people fortunate to live near an ocean, lake, or other body of water. This leaves many with a basic yard perhaps with some grass, a shed, and a patio table. It doesn’t have to be like that and you don’t need to try and create your own water feature. There are many professional landscaping companies that specialize in these types of projects.

The cheapest method of building water features involves just a few hundred dollars but lots of your time. This is the method most people are familiar with and that is to do it yourself (DIY). This can however backfire if the end result is far from desired and you find yourself burying it instead. On the bright side you will have at least gained some of the health benefits of a water feature through the exercise.

Hmm… Perhaps even cheaper than the first method depending on how you value your time, simply going to the local Walmart or pond/landscaping/fountain store and buying a pre-made kit may also do the trick. There are some companies that offer either pre-made kits or pre-made fiberglass fountain statues – but you want something much bigger right?

A more costly method is to actually hire someone else who is going to create it for you. Make sure this person has experience and the photos on their website are of their own projects. It isn’t uncommon to hire someone new only to find that they are biting off more than they can chew.

A professional landscaping company that specializes in water features will either use natural stone or use specially mixed concrete. Some companies use fibreglass rock panels that look like real rock and then patch them together. Overall, people will know what you spent on your water feature.

Their first impression will likely be either:

1. Wow, that is nice

2.Wow, that is really nice! or

3. WOWOWOW, THAT IS REALLY NICE

At least this is what they will be thinking…

One point that quickly comes to mind is conservation. One of the benefits of having pondless water features is the minimal reliance on water consumption. Pondless water features have contained basins where the same water gets cycled over and over. Most people know that the look and sound of water features reduces blood pressure. But did you know that the reduced lower hydro bill can also keep your blood pressure levels in check?

Whether you like water features for your yard or indoors you have a wide range of options. The best time to invest in one is now (sooner rather than later). The longer you have one, the more enjoyment and benefit you can extract from the overall value.

Try calling on some of the companies that specialize in water features in your local area to inquire about some of the options available. For the DIYer you may be able to get some free advice on where to purchase supplies at reasonable prices. For the person that just wants the best and wants it now it is still a good idea to ask around to see what is available. What might be considered the ‘best’ to one may be completely opposite from another.

Pool Waterfalls [WaterfallNow]

WaterfallNow is experienced in creating all kinds of custom pool waterfalls. What was once a 2 man landscaping operation eventually saw a long transition to a niche market in custom waterfalls. The team grew a passion for creating man-made artificial rock water features and waterfalls for people throughout the Lower Mainland, BC.

Through many years of trial and error WaterfallNow finally settled on a technique that clients could afford, looked realistic, lasts indefinitely with no fear of cracking or maintenance, and was highly desired. WaterfallNow has created luxurious pool waterfalls for rock bottom prices while just starting out in the business. That learning process is something that ultimately benefits our new clients (friends).

Though the market was not as big as what was once very busy as commercial landscapers it has been picking up in pace. One of the things that we noticed was the importance of timing. Over a decade ago for example, the WaterfallNow team sold artificial turf and “Viking Ice” (you can’t win them all). The artificial turf business was not big at the time but fast forward to NOW, nearly every landscaping company today is utilizing artificial grass in one way or another. Moral of this story was that we should have remained focused no matter what was going on to the left or right.

Almost a last ditch effort, WaterfallNow decided to stick with the custom waterfalls idea no matter how crazy it seemed. We knew that over time, the trend would eventually catch on and more people would be envisioning having one of WaterfallNow’s rock features for their home. Our goal was to provide rock bottom prices for these luxury resort theme rock walls and pool waterfalls. Did we achieve that goal? Far from it… However, WaterfallNow has decided to make a big change this year.

One major mistake that we made in the past was not owning the domain name of our business (it used to be under rockywaterfall.com). The person who owned the domain vanished to Australia without any contact. Losing the website along with all the files on it was tough for us. WaterfallNow was once burnt out and unable to handle all of the demands. Following the loss of the website, business had slowed down to a grind. Things such as school and other ventures eventually got in the way and there was no focus.

Some things happened in 2014 and the team (WaterfallNow) decided to get back into the game. One of the motivations was to be in a position to offer a service that others aren’t willing to offer – for a multitude of reasons. The team did not attend any trades school or take any courses to take to learn and develop a unique method of creating the rock features. Everything learned was ‘acquired’ over many years of trial-and-error along with a major investment of time and money. If WaterfallNow wasn’t going to do it, nobody else would. By now we understand how to harness the power of focus in business.

WaterfallNow has a new line of rock designs and styles. Our rocks are hand-made using a blend of natural and synthetic materials. We employ fiberglass because it holds the shape of realistic rock faces (the cracks, grooves, dips) much better than anything else on the market. Plastic did not look real concrete cracked and required a lot of manpower. Concrete is undoubtedly one of the best ways to create large water features but the cost is an issue for most home-owners.

WaterfallNow helps owners of luxury homes that are either built, or in the process of being built, probably the best way to get a truly custom designed rock waterfall or water feature for their backyard, frontyard, or pond, or pool. The endless custom options including lighting is what differentiates WaterfallNow from everything else. We create beautiful waterfalls for pools that for the same dollar for dollar amount elsewhere would never be possible.

We once took a look at indoor water walls or water wall fountains and were amazed that they could average between $4000 – $10,000 online. The wall-mounted water walls are undoubtedly a great fit for indoor locations but the dollar amount is a barrier for most consumers. WaterfallNow for some crazy reason still maintains a similar price range for something that is truly custom tailored, built on-site, can be made to any shape, or colour, and is much bigger in size.

Whether prices increase in the future is left to be determined. WaterfallNow continues to serve current clients with rates that most people can budget for their home.

After all, a luxury home (every home) is not complete without a great yard that you get to enjoy for half of the year – for many years. WaterfallNow has created many pool waterfalls for clients under $10,000 that not only look like they cost 5x more but even helped our clients eventually sell their home for more than what they were expecting. The increased property value or even personal attachment of the waterfall to a prospective buyer can be part of the added benefits.

We have met many people over the years who now can’t imagine owning a property without the sound of a waterfall.

If you are looking for a pool waterfall that is simply for decorative purposes we encourage you to get in touch with WaterfallNow.

In other news… Here is a photo of an indoor rock feature approximately halfway to completion. Does it look like real rock?

indoor rock wall

WaterfallNow no longer utilizes rocks purchased online for the purpose of creating fancy waterfalls. The team now uses its own hand-made rocks to create all custom designer artificial rocks and pool waterfalls. We appreciate any feedback you may have. WaterfallNow also hopes to get back in touch with previous clients under this new domain name.
