We moved in to a new house last August, and I'm looking for a solution to safety-proof my backyard. We have two young children under 3 years old, and originally we had two ponds in our backyard. Last fall, after we moved in we filled one in, but we would like to keep the one that is in the back corner of our lot, as I really enjoy the sound of a water feature.
I'm thinking a pondless waterfall might be the way to go, and probably look better than just fencing in the exsisting pond. Has anyone built a pondless water feature? I'm wondering what to use under the stones that will fill the pond in... Some kind of grate I assume? Any experience with this??
