Waterfalls for backyards are a popular feature in many backyards. For the in-style homeowner, water features are a must-have. While not everyone wants a pond for fish or people to swim in, pondless waterfalls are very popular. Pondless waterfalls for backyards are nice because when the waterfall is turned off, there is no standing water remaining. A pondless waterfall is cascading water that vanishes in between rocks, collecting somewhere out of sight. This is a safety feature for families with small children as well as a health advantage, because there is no still water breeding ground for mosquitoes.
