Native plants were used throughout the multi-level landscaping, helping the home blend in more naturally with its surrounding environment. Here, the gorgeous pool gets even more decadent with a waterfall.
The waterfall spills into a fountain on the back wall of the courtyard. Thick teak chairs surround a table made from a gnarled petrified tree stump. The organic shape of the table really softens the sharp lines of the chairs and back wall.
In coldest regions, shutting down a waterfall for winter makes sense for several reasons. You save on energy costs, extend the life of equipment and also avoid having ice dams form. A running waterfall in winter cools pond water quickly and to a greater depth, potentially lowering water temperature to a point that’s unhealthy for fish. In place of a waterfall, add an aeration system to the pond for winter to add air to the water.
