BC Place: Water Features, Waterfalls, And Fountains In Vancouver

Temporary 12×18 pond setup using 2×6 lumber. Internally braced to provide more stability and security. A normal pond setup would be outdoors and dug into the ground. WaterfallNow typically employs pondless waterfalls which require very little water. The water splashes down into a hidden reservoir covered up by river rock and recirculates back up through a pump.

We were going to bring in some custom cherry wood benches made by new air custom designs but the deadline to ship things in was unfortunately passed. This particular display was crafted quickly on-site in a matter of hours. This type of project would normally have taken us several days with a large crew many years ago when we first began experimenting with fiberglass rocks

 

WaterfallNow has experience with concrete, natural rock, plastic rock, styrofoam rock, and even bricks. We have done it all and no other material captures the natural rock shapes found in nature as the ones we manufacture ourselves. Because the outer layer is composed of a mixture of natural rock, the rock can promote the growth of algae and within a few years resemble a real rock.

The thickness of the rock panels can be adjusted according to the purpose. In general, these rocks are meant to be used for display purposes and will last for many decades this way even operating in all 4 seasons.

The majority of the work that we do goes into crafting each rock panel specifically for the design we have in mind. There is a high cost involved in the production of the panels themselves. Anyone who has ever constructed fiberglass boats can attest to the high costs of fiberglass services and products. The equipment, skill, working conditions, and other associated costs may surprise those new to this industry but it is one the team at WaterfallNow is experienced in.

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.

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.

WaterfallNow: Stumbling Blocks & Growing Pains

waterfallnow stumbling blocks

The crew at WaterfallNow simply loves doing what they do and are thankful for the opportunities to work on a number of different projects. WaterfallNow has been able to help many clients in the Lower Mainland relax with a staycation at their own home while listening to the soothing sounds of cascading water.

Starting something new is always daunting. Stepping into a small niche industry already dominated by larger companies was even more daunting. But in the end, persistency always seems to have a way of paying off. Perhaps the only reason we decided that this would be a good idea was because of the support of our customers. We would be nowhere had we not received that support.

 

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?

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.

Indoor Waterfall Surrey BC

Apologies for the delay. We have been working diligently to provide the best service possible while also maintaining the attention to detail that we take pride in. We are working on an indoor waterfall Surrey BC that will be completed in the next few weeks.

We look forward to hearing from all of the builders, home-owners, architects and designers that work on luxury homes. Those who have one of WaterfallNow’s water features in their home will tell you that they just can’t imagine being without one.

This is going to be a very interesting year for WaterfallNow with many unique opportunities along the way. We look forward to meeting new people and helping those who need the services that we provide.

Unlike pre-made water features that can cost roughly the same, WaterfallNow builds on-site, according to the clients needs. The ability to solve problems has offered WaterfallNow many great rewards.

These rewards are ultimately passed onto our new clients who will receive ever-increasing product value, creativity, and service.

If you are unsure whether or not you should give us a call then you probably won’t.

A good majority of the people that contact WaterfallNow have looked around, have made up their minds, and don’t want to wait any longer. They want what we offer, can’t wait to enjoy the benefits, but they hate the darned waiting list.

We sincerely apologize for the delays and know how you may feel. However, we can tell you with a high degree of confidence that having a custom/unique designer artificial rock waterfall will be worth the wait than going with something pre-made that will cost more or less the same or lose it’s appeal quite quickly.

If you want something pre-made WaterfallNow suggests dealing locally rather than online. The costs of shipping and customs can outweigh the benefits. Moreover, should you want to return a defective product you will be wasting your time. Do a search for what you are looking for in your local market/city and form person to person relationships with businesses in your local market.

Indoor Water Wall Fountains

WaterfallNow has been in the business of creating or distributing pre-made hand-made indoor water wall fountains for many years.

indoor water wall fountains canada

The wide-range of experience having worked with many clients throughout the Lower Mainland helps us to seamlessly tackle any challenges in design.

New houses are springing up everywhere and more people are looking for that ‘thing’ to make their home extra special. After all, what is a luxury home without a beautiful showcase water feature?

There are many different types of indoor water fountains and water features in the marketplace. Many of these can be purchased online at a considerable rate from Ebay or Amazon. Some choices include: Table-top, stand-alone, wall-mounted, rain curtain, horizontal waterway spillovers, vertical water walls. There are also a wide range of materials ranging from marble, concrete, fiberglass, glass, or even aluminium.

These stunning features are a focal point of every interior design renovation. They add ambiance to the room as well as and help to reduce stress. These low-maintenance water features can be added to virtually any room in the house and take up very little space.

WaterfallNow keeps its hands in the production aspect of things by collaborating directly with all clients from start to finish. The idea is to stand out from the competition and in a sense create a new trade in itself. With some creativity, and a special fiberglass rock paneling system that is easy to to handle and versatile, WaterfallNow creates works of art that are unique and can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Our fiberglass artificial rock panels will last indefinitely. Maintenance consists of ensuring that the water level does not fall too low. This is often a set it and leave it scenario handled during the design of the indoor waterfall. All of our realistic hand-made fake rock panels are unaffected by the seasons and are not prone to cracking from freeze-thaw action.

WaterfallNow has many years of experience in creating custom artificial rock water walls that span entire walls. This experience enables WaterfallNow to customize any indoor waterfall interior design project specifically for the clients needs. Our design team can build nearly any waterfall feature, indoors or outdoors, to any size, shape, or colour.

Each of our indoor water wall fountains are specially designed to add instant value and leave a lasting impression on your guests. WaterfallNow creates each of the indoor water wall fountains and water features with just as much attention to detail from one to the next. With an unlimited number of custom options to choose from, there is no limit to what you can have done.

We offer some of the most affordable rates due to the fact that we work with very small-sized teams. For more or less the same amount WaterfallNow provides something larger, custom designed, and truly beautiful. (See sample rates from pre-made indoor water wall fountain distributors).

From concept to completion WaterfallNow works efficiently (weather permitting) and creatively to design the perfect water feature for each client’s unique wants. WaterfallNow’s artists are not satisfied until each of the indoor water wall fountains are visually appealing works of art. From good, better, to best, WaterfallNow will work with your budget offering very competitive pricing.

Space permitting, opting for WaterfallNow’s rock waterfalls and rock panels yields improved long-term value, service, and customer satisfaction than the alternatives. You can buy a pre-made water wall fountain for more or less the same price or have one that is larger, custom-made, and will not lose its appeal with WaterfallNow.

Thinking about installing an indoor water feature and want to go all out? You will find that it is well worth the investment to have something custom-designed just for you.

Surrey to Surpass Vancouvers Population in 10 years

Surrey is often negatively displayed on news media, print media, and in general. Regardless, the growth potential of this city is very big. Surrey truly is a hidden gem for business expansion.

Have you ever noticed the amount of development that has been taking place in recent years (Surrey in particular)? It is widely expected that Surrey’s population will surpass that of Vancouver in the next 10 to 12 years.

The number of residential building permits being granted shows the boom that’s happening. During the economic crunch in 2009, there were only 2,200 permits issued. Now there have been record breaking numbers since with 4,000 permits granted last year (2013).

‚ÄúFive or six major developers are currently quietly buying every piece of land from 96th and 108th Avenue,‚ÄĚ says Grant Murray, VP of sales for Concord Pacific. http://globalnews.ca/news/653206/surreys-population-projected-to-surpass-vancouvers/

WaterfallNow looks forward to the future and is well poised in the marketplace to capitalize on this growth trend.  We have a good idea of the potential in store for the next decade and just hope that we continue to partner with key players that will fuel the growth of the entire water features industry.

Many hard-working business owners in Surrey have earned every right to enjoy the fruits of their labour. They are a focus group that WaterfallNow is especially dedicated to serving.
