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.
