Pondless Water Features Pricing

Pondless water features typically cost less than ponds but are less standardized in terms of pricing because they vary tremendously in terms of size and decorative features. The length of the stream, height of the waterfall, size of the boulders, and decorative features used, such as Mongolian basalt stones, urns, spill bowls, etc., will impact the final price of your pondless waterfall.

Example: below is a pondless waterfall with a stream and a set of 3 Mongolian basalt columns.

Stream with a pondless waterfall: $9,500

3x set of Mongolian Basalt Columns: $5,800
