A pondless waterfall saves space and reduces workload. If you would like a water feature in your yard but would rather skip all the cleaning and algae removal and what not that goes with a pond check out this waterfall how to from Backyard Design Ideas.
LOVE this shape fountain with river rock covering reservoir. The smaller opening keeps leaves/debris at a minimum. *When designed as a fountain there's a deep basin at the top. Better than using a pot to make a fountain.
