Water Features – Waterfalls
Imagine yourself floating in a tranquil pool of warm, clear blue water, listening to the soothing sounds of a waterfall. Moist, humid air carries the scent of fresh damp earth, while a slight breeze rustles the leaves of surrounding trees.
All our waterfalls are pre-designed by us (or you) and pre-built right in our own yard. For your convenience, they are pre-numbered and a diagram is supplied showing which numbers go where. The basins are “carved in” and come in a “ready to install” condition. We have a unique product, our mini waterfall. It is self contained in its own pond. The pond itself comes in sized ranging from 2′ by 3′ right up to 150′ long. Now you can hear the soothing sound of running water right in your own living room; or on your deck or patio or anywhere outside.
The reasons we like pre-building them is:
(a) In our large stone yard we have hundreds of tons of choice of stone to select from, so we can choose the best pieces for each spot without requiring all the extra pieces on the job site.
(b) We can create specially cut pieces in house with our 9 foot diamond blade saw, which would not be easy on a job site.
(c) We are working on a firm gravel yard during the pre-build instead of on someone’s lawn, plus shaping chips and saw dust are not in our customers yard.
(d) Job sites are often tight for space, so the pieces required first can be sent first, requiring no extra job site storage space.
(e) It is very impressive to our customers and their neighbors when we bring in many pieces, and just put them in place so easily it looks so professional and fast .
(f) We cut basins into the ledges, where the water falls, so we can have control of the water with it falling into the churning basin of water instead of splashing uncontrollably after falling onto a hard ledge.
(g) We can pre-build falls with a cave running behind it, where you can come out behind the falling water. (For example, the one we are offering as a fundraiser to help find a cure for
Each mini waterfall comes ready to install and each kit includes the following:
(a) a mini waterfall in either limestone or granite; due to the nature of natural stone,
each unit will be unique, there will not be two exactly alike.
(b) pump and internal plumbing
(c) decorative beach pebbles for the bottom of the pond (for larger units)

Colonial’s masonry crew, Elroy Wagler Masonry, built this Weatheredge Limestone waterfall at the plowing match in Listowel, ON. This waterfall has a cave running through the back so you can stand under the falling water.
