Free Hands-On Pondless Waterfall Class

What's a pondless waterfall? It's a water feature without a pond. Well, sort of. There is a pond but it is hidden in the ground with rocks. The waterfall has the appearance of disappearing into the ground.

Join us on April 18th 9am-4pm in Bradenton for a hands on class on how to create a pondless waterfall. Anyone interested in attending the class should contact us at backyardgetaway@verizon.net for address info.
