This project features one of our smallest and simplest Ecosystem ponds. But small doesn't mean different. This ecosystem pond was constructed following all the same steps used to build any size pond, and upon completion it functions exactly like its larger relatives. In just a few hours our experienced crew transformed this patch of grass into a living koi pond!
Digging the pond proved easy. Our procedure for making this pond is the same regardless of size. after excavation, our crew set the skimmer and biofalls where they will be positioned by the pond. Once these foundational parts are placed, underlayment, and then EPDM liner could be put into the pond.
With a motivated team of experienced builders, this rock work for this pond was completed in an hour! Our team installed the pump and plumbing work. Aquatic plants were added to help create a functioning ecosystem that koi fish could thrive in. After the rock work was completed, our team rinsed out the pond to remove excess dirt from construction. The pond was filled, and when the pump was plugged in, an new ecosystem koi pond was born before the owners eyes.
The relaxing sights and sounds of this little pond transformed these homeowners backyard patio into a relaxation station. This little pond brings all the delights of nature right to the edge of their living space. Watch this video to learn more about this tiny gem.

The owners of this project showcase approached Tussey Landscaping looking for a contractor to help them create the landscape of their dreams. They wanted something natural, that would incorporate and enhance the living beauty of nature. Our Mountain Stream 16' pondless waterfall was the fit.
Weathered Limestone boulders were used to frame and create the waterfalls. the aged boulders bring timelessness to a newly constructed water feature.
An old stump was added. The aesthetic properties of the stump are obvious, but the aged relic also becomes a host for very biologically diverse collection of life. insects, moss, plants, and other tiny lives will call this home.
Winter hardy plants like this Chameleon Plant add color and life to this water feature.
These artistic waterfalls are more than just rocks and water. The winding stream, slow and ponderous, then cascading through itself, is the music and heartbeat of the landscape.
A Healthy ecosystem waterfalls attracts and breeds life on many levels.
There is infinite beauty in nature. On every level, from the roaring Niagara to the single sphere of water, there is a discovery of beauty waiting to be found.
It is more than just a waterfall. It is the centerpiece of the landscape, and of nature. from the tiny moss creeping along the waters edge, through the gentle flowers that grow beside the stream, to the trees that shade all below, the entire landscape integrated itself to water.
Check out this quick video of this natural beauty running in all its glory!
