Pondless Waterfall

At the Iverson’s we were faced with a challenge of the grade sloping back toward the home.  When it rained the run off would track down the drive way across a dry stream bed.  Also, people had a hard time approaching the front door when they visited because the driveway was so steep.  We decided to turn the dry stream bed into a pondless water feature transforming a weedy patch of rocks into a beautiful landscape feature.  A bridge transports visitors across the babbling brook to the front entrance.

To tackle the steep hill in front we created a nice pathway of pavers that meanders down the hill to the bridge.  There are some nice planting beds that compliment the steps and water feature.  Overall these improvements have undoubtedly improved the properties access as well as the value.
