At DU Waterscapes, we educate and inspire people to embrace naturally balanced water-gardening so that they can reconnect with nature for the proven benefits to their mental and physical health.
We combine both natural processes and applied sciences to achieve water-gardening excellence by increasing biodiversity and the abundance of native flora and fauna in order to repair, protect and restore habitats throughout the UK.
Small Spaces With A Big Impact
Both Pondless Waterfalls and Fountainscapes can fit into the smallest of spaces, but can also create large focal points for bigger projects, perfect for the edge of a seating area, the shady corner where nothing grows, or in your front driveway as you arrive home.
They can be used separately or combined for an eye-catching feature. You can visit our displays at Coombe Garden Centre in Honiton or Kelways Garden Centre in Langport.
What is a Pondless
A Pondless has all the drama of a waterfall but without the maintenance or space requirements of a pond below. These tumbling streams add movement and sound to your space whilst still attracting wildlife, before soaking away into underground holding tanks to be cleaned and recirculated. The oxygenated water creates negative ions which capture allergens and spores, creating the clean-air feel we associate with mountains and other wide natural spaces.
What is a Fountainscape
Fountainscapes are an exceptional and artistic way to enhance any outdoor living space, adding a whole new sensory experience to your garden. A fountainscape provides the soothing sound of splashing water and is pretty much ideal for anyone’s garden, whatever the size. Whether it is a bubbling rock or cascading bowls, it can transform an ordinary space into a true focal point, with the restorative sounds and hypnotic movements of water. They will attract wildlife, providing a valuable drinking source to birds and refuge for many other species.
Each feature is bespoke, working with the available space and the vision you are trying to achieve. Combining tumbling streams with cascading urns can be a dynamic display whereas some delicate bubbling rocks creates an intimate atmosphere perfect for a small terrace. We want to work alongside you to create your vision.
What Makes a Pondless or Fountainscape Great?
As there is not pool of water, it makes it a great addition if you are concerned about the issues with a traditional pond ie young children, pets, etc.
Is always a big influencing factor when considering any type of water feature. In most cases a disappearing water feature is less than a typical pond as there is less labour involved as well as rocks and other materials.
A disappearing water feature can be a very small meaning you can pretty much enjoy one anywhere in your outdoor space even in a small court yard garden.
Looking after a disappearing waterfall is easy, you may need to fill the basin up every few weeks in the warmer months due to evaporation but that is basically it!
