This weeping water wall is made from basic plumbing supplies hidden in the structure of a container pond. Use these tips to create your own.
This is part of a series on everything you need to know to add a pond or water feature in your garden.
Make a Water Wall
I saw this neat water feature on a garden tour. It is a hybrid between a water wall and a water fall. The wood structure on either side and above the pond conceals the working parts.
To make one, you need a small pond, a pond pump, pump hose and some PVC pipe mounted above the pond. I have instructions for making a pond in a box or raised bed here.
Holes are drilled in the PVC pipe and the output hose from the pump is mounted into one end of this pipe. It basically works like a soaker hose. The flow rate from the pump is adjusted to form the desired water wall / water fall effect.
You wouldn’t want this pond feature in a windy area (because you’d lose too much water), but a sheltered area like the one shown here next to a deck would be ideal.
Here’s a short clip of how it looks:
I think this idea would also work well to create an interesting waterfall across the edge of an in ground pond as well.
On a side note, fish love to have massages under waterfalls.
