A quick post to show you some pictures of of the Waterfall at Aspen Grove Gardens – my private garden located in Southern Ontario, Canada.

It has been in place for about 12 years, and is 12 feet high and 55 feet long, with a small pond at the bottom. There are 5 smaller waterfalls along the waters route. It does use a pump to get water to the top of the hill, but there is no filtration system. The rocks and plants in the waterway act as biological filters for the system. No chemicals are used and water is never tested. I believe that if you build it correctly, nature will take care of it for you.

I have been gardening my whole life and have a science background. Besides writing and speaking about gardening, I own and operate a 6 acre private garden called Aspen Grove Gardens which now has over 3,000 perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees. Yes--I am a plantaholic!

  1. I think the reason this is so beautiful is the natural contours of the land ( and of course craftsmanship ) . I never liked the artificial waterfalls people make in the middle of a flat lawn, they don’t seem to have a relationship to the rest of the garden
